I like to check out close by places on TripAdvisor when I am in town and noticed this wonderful street, this eclectic street is full of shops and stores. Well worth looking for.

the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
