Holborn area is north of the traditional stamping ground for journalists in Fleet Street and lawyers in the Inner Temple and Middle Temple. Holborn is heavily populated with serviced office business centres and offices for rent. The most northerly of the Inns of Court, Gray's Inn, is in Holborn. It is also the location of Barnard's Inn, the current home of Gresham College, the first college in London. The Daily Mirror offices used to be just outside the town, and this is a good advert for the serviced office space, business centres and office space to rent.
Holborn has been the site of new offices and hotels, which have exploited its excellent public transport links (Holborn underground station is the junction of the Central and Piccadilly lines), and its strategic location between the City of London and the West End.
In more recent times High Holborn has become an efficient businesslike street where lawyers and financial professionals have cemented their place amongst entertainment venues. The Holborn Empire stood between 1867 and 1960 when it was pulled down after structural damage sustained in the blitz. Here was the first ever showing of a full-length feature film in 1924, The Wold, the Flesh and the Devil, a 100-minute melodrama filmed in Kinemacolour. Even more recently, until 1992, the London Weather Centre stood here.
