There is nothing better than The Hoxton's full English breakfast and a latte from Holborn Grind - these places are next to each other too.

The best and juiciest burger I have ever had! They have fantastic deals as well that enable you to get brilliant quality food for a reasonable price. The restaurant is very small, quaint and even offers cosy blankets if you're feeling a little nippy!

A restaurant, bar and club all in one, so you can spend all night here! It's a great place for large groups who want to catch up over dinner without having to move on to somewhere else later in the night.

Yoga Therapy London - Ante Natal Yoga HolbornDragons Hall - Holborn & Covent Garden
Yoga Therapy has been used in India for thousands of years to help heal many illnesses and physical injuries. It uses a combination of yoga practices to help restore the body and emotions to full health when illness is present. It is much more specialist than yoga with all sessions tailored to a specific ailment or injury. Yoga Therapy assists the systems of the body to function as efficiently, effectively and naturally as possible. The aim is not simply to help heal the specific symptoms but to target the cause and therefore help to stop the ailment or injury reoccurring. Much medical research is now available showing that Yoga Therapy is very effective in treating many conditions. Yoga Therapy is complimentary to western medicine and should not be viewed as a substitute for a medical diagnosis or the services of a physician. Yoga Therapy can be practised in conjunction with medical treatments being received and also in tandem with other complementary therapies. Website
