High Holborn (// 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 street is mentioned in Adrian Mitchell's poem Celia, Celia:
When I am sad and weary
When I think all hope has goneI think of you with nothing on
When I walk along High Holborn
The street is depicted on Christmas 1883 in one of the segments of the 2005 Doctor Who on-line adventure game, "Attack of the Graske". The street is not named in the game; rather, a birds-eye view zooms down into the street in front of what is now the Chancery Court Hotel at No. 252.
