Looking for a cleaner

Hi there, I am looking for a cleaner in Holborn. Couple of hours a week but we can't set a fxied time or guarantee that we will need someone every week (for example if people are away) as we don't have a spare set of keys. This is making it difficult to find someone as all of the cleaning companies I've found ask you to pay in advance for a specific weekly slot or charge extortionate amounts for one off cleaning.

I'd be really grateful if anyone could recommend someone.

Thanks, Emma

Hi. My name is Darren I am available for all handy jobs and gardening work.

I am qualified and very reliable.

Anything from assembling ikea stuff to sorting out the lawns.


Tue Nov 01

The most important thing is to be on the right tube line

- it doesnt matter if this is slightly further out. Hence, go North on the Piccadilly line (up to Holloway, Finsbury Park, Turnpike Lane, Wood Green, etc). Prices are much cheaper and it would still only take you under 30 mins. Plus, you get to live in 'real' neighbourhoods rather than the tourist/business areas.

I wouldnt recommend "Angel, Upper street, Old street, Clapham, Farringdon, Camden" as none of them are on the right line and the commute would be unpleasant - you would have to rely on buses (slower and not nice if its raining) or have to change tubes.

Mon Aug 22

very true, never any food in any of the supermarkets in holborn. I suggest one takes a Van to the countryside and pick your own veg. After that drive to Norfolk and bag some sturkeys. If it is steak is what you need a whole cow will not fit in your frigde, get together with your street and draw lots for the prime cuts. On a serious note avoid the butchers on Theobalds Road, well presented but not fresh.

Mon Aug 22

Really depends what you want. Consider brick lane and shorditch, This area has loads of bars and clubs and restaurants too. This area is full of young designers and artisans, very vibrant. Commuting from here to the centre by bus is about 30 minute, by tube about ten minutes. If you prefer your greener places then you have Clapham more suburban flavour also quite a lot to do here, this area is about 20 minutes from the center of town by tube. relatively safe. then you also have Camden, not my favourite area, but a lot of others seem to like it. Also consider Angel and Islington. My guess with the aformentioned areas you will not go far wrong, Fitzrovia and notting hill are quite far and unless you have money to burn in these area you will easily end up on the wrong side of the track.

In short go for Angel, Upper street, old street, Bethnal green,Clapham, farringdon, camden. they are all within 30 minutes prices are reasonable

Mon Aug 22

You will need to walk towards Clerkenwell and Farrigndon. There quite a lot of furtniure shops there, the Vitra shop is there and a lot more. They are quite modern and trendy. From chancery lane the walk will be about five minutes. Good Luck, you won't need it cause most of the shops there are very good. Another option is googe street ten minutes from hoborn, you will have heals and quite a few other furniture shops down there they are also good, not quite as modern, but good .

Mon Aug 22


Holborn is within walking distance of where you want to be as far as I am aware and I am moving into a flat there at the end of August and am looking for a further flatmate to share this with me. Contact me for more details at

Chancery Lane, Holborn

Hello Henry,

I have lived for four years in Holborn and I can tell you it is great! It is so close to Oxford Street and Soho, so prepare yourself for a lot of fun!

It is a very safe area, even though on High Holborn there are several junkies but if you don't go near them, they should not bother you.

The downside of Holborn is that it is fairly expensive. A one bedroom flat is about 1,200 a month.

If you can, I suggest you try to get into some students housing, as there are lots of them around LSE in Holborn. Otherwise I recommend you try to find something around Tottenham Court Road.

You might want to try the ads on www.loot.com. It is the on-line version of the most popular magazine for finding housing.

If you cannot find anything affordable from Hong Kong, why don't you stay at the Generator (www.generatorhostels.com) for a couple of days and lok for a decent accomodation while here?

Good luck!

Chancery Lane, Holborn

Dear All,

I am going to Chancery Lane, Holborn for my futher study at the end of August. I'm from Hong Kong. I have no idea what area in Holborn or near Holborn is good and cheap to live.

Or please advise me with any information about Holborn.

Millions Thanks.

LSE Postgrad - where to live

There are actually some places around Holborn itself, although they are scarce, expensive and probably difficult yo get hold of. Otherwise you could try Elephant and Castle, across the river just south of Waterloo Station, and from there along Walworth Road down to Camberwell Green, or Old Kent Road down to New Cross. Both Roads have regular buses to Aldwych (Walworth Road is better for buses).

Thu May 27

there is one called 'finsbury health centre' which is on pine street london Ec1r ojh

London Neighborhoods

I'm a student from the US going to the LSE for postgrad. I'm looking for a flat but I'm having a hard time with figuring how far apart everything is in terms of travel time. What are the names of some nearby neighborhoods, within 30 minutes walking or an easy tube trip to the LSE? It seems like Fitzrovia, Notting Hill, etc. are too far for an easy commute. Any suggestions?

Thu May 27

As central as you get!

Holborn is positioned to get to pretty much anywhere in London quickly. Easy access to the City, Oxford St, Cov gdn., and has lots of transport facilities.
