Archaeological excavations revealed the remains of a public house known as the Three Tuns at Holborn Bridge. The brick walls and floors of several buildings were excavated along with water tanks, and furnaces associated with the brewing process. The buildings lined both sides of Snow Hill which was the main coaching road west out of London from Middle Ages.
Salt Best for a moment of quiet contemplation, Salt offers a welcome retreat from the hubbub of central London. Sandwiched between Holborn and Covent Garden, the narrow space remains calm throughout busy periods and even over the weekend, letting visitors actually stop to savour their lunch. Linger over the lengthy menu of fresh breads, soups and salads or indulge that sweet tooth with a dense chocolate brownie. Address: 34 Great Queen Street, Covent Garden, WC2B 5AA.
Staple Inn was originally attached to Gray's Inn, one of the four Inns of Court. The original building dates from 1585, but after heavy damage from a German bomb in 1944, it was extensively restored - making it a far more splendid front today than that seen by the 19th-century shoppers of Holborn.
