High Holborn Silver Lining

LSE’s High Holborn residence won silver at the prestigious 2010 Visit London Awards, coming second in the category of 'Best Budget Accommodation'.

With a shortlist of six other accommodation providers competing on the night, Holborn’s silver award is an exceptional achievement and testament to the hard work of the team over the past 12 months. High Holborn offers quality accommodation through the student vacation period and is next open to the public for summer 2011.

Commenting on the award, Sarah Jons, LSE's residences service manager, said:

High HolbornThe Visit London awards acknowledge the very best of London tourism, from outstanding individuals to hotels and visitor attractions. High Holborn continues to offer great value, affordable bed & breakfast in the heart of London and it’s fantastic to be recognised in this way."

“Considering High Holborn only trades to the public in the summer vacation it is a particular achievement to be recognised by the judges. Additional revenue from vacation trading contributes to keeping student rents as low as possible and this award will help publicise LSE vacation accommodation further."

The LSE residences team were presented their award during a glitzy black tie ceremony at the “Bloomsbury Big Top” on 8th December 2010.
