High Holborn (/ˈhbərn/ HOH-bərn) is a street in Holborn, central London, which forms a part of the A40 route from London to Fishguard. It starts in the west as a turn off Charing Cross Road, near St Giles Circus, and runs past the Kingsway and Southampton Row, becoming Holborn at its eastern junction with Gray's Inn Road.

The nearest London Underground stations are Tottenham Court Road, Holborn, and Chancery Lane, all on the Central line which runs beneath High Holborn.

The Embassy of Cuba is located at No. 167.[1]

The street was a "Feature sites" for introduction of the Camden bench.[2]
