Holborn Circular
Walk with Jill Finch. Holborn may have derived its name from the Middle English ‘hol’ (a hollow) and ‘bourne’ (a brook). Modern Holborn has a fascinating history and this gently paced circular walk weaves through alleys and courts that tell tales of lawyers, slum priests, a dancing Queen and a desperate poet.
