For those planning a post-work do, Holborn is extremely well-positioned. Its proximity to the City of London means it's just a short walk from most offices, while its tube and bus links cover the rest of the capital. For smaller groups, many of Holborn’s restaurants have private rooms where you and your colleagues can unwind with privacy. Larger groups, meanwhile, can hire the restaurant exclusively, or go for something more unusual. Those looking for something truly memorable should consider hiring out one of Holborn’s lesser-known venues. These include everything from karaoke bars and hotpot restaurants to gothic churches and blank canvas warehouses. Choosing something a little more unusual like this is a surefire way to impress your guests and give them an evening they’ll never forget.
Throughout history, Holborn was always famous for its pubs and taverns. In the 1860s, there were 22 recorded, although many were destroyed in the blitz. Some, however, have survived to this day, providing a great spot for a pint steeped in history. Elsewhere, you’ll find quite a few blue plaques dotted around, sporting names such as Charles Dickens, Benjamin Disraeli and Spencer Perceval. As one might expect from an area with so much history, Holborn has quite a few museums. While they aren’t all available to hire for events, we recommend swinging by them next time you get the chance. Another Holborn attraction you can’t miss is Lincoln’s Inn Fields, the largest public square in London and supposedly the inspiration for Central Park in New York.
