I got sucked in by a sign that said it was the number one dessert place in London (if I remember correctly) and I wasn't disappointed. The ice cream I chose was a large cone with three different flavours: oreo, banana and salted caramel (price...More

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
