Located in the heart of Holborn

The buzzy cosmopolitan surrounds of Holborn will delight you guests by day and by night. Strings of eclectic eateries representing global cuisine are at your fingertips, and the famous theatre district in the West End is just a stone’s throw away. L’oscar London is in the thick of it all, and most central London attractions are within walking distance if not a scenic taxi drive from your luxuriant hotel stay. The treasured literary hub of Bloomsbury is just round the corner, where a number of notable novelists such as Viginia Woolf herself once lived. The British Museum stands proudly beside neat rows of London townhouses nearby, and by the time you’ve visited all of its exhibits, you’ll step back to the modern day fuelled with the fascinating stories that transcend human history. The pulsing late night scene in Soho is also loved by Londoners and partygoers from around the world.  Hop from shop to restaurant to club in this energetic web of backstreets behind the high end retail and designer stores on Oxford Street and Regent Street. Covent Garden is another jewel of London, where cobbled walkways meet a vibrant marketplace and the timeless balletic beauty of the Royal Opera House. With all of these attractions and more, the knowledgeable L’oscar London concierge can help you plan out your itinerary.

What is totally unique about L’oscar London is the fact that this London wedding venue was once the Headquarters of the Baptist Church. Original elements of the religious institution still shine through its rich redesign and the relics serve as quirky reminders of its bygone era. The venue is fully licensed to host ceremonies, and the octagonal chapel at the heart of L’oscar London still feels as though you are marrying in the church itself. However, if you are keen to marry in a working place of worship then there is a huge variety within walking distance to explore. Just five minutes away, St George’s in Bloomsbury is the local parish church with a converted crypt that houses the museum of comedy. Closer still is the Church of St Anslem and St Cecilia, a Roman Catholic Grade II listed building with a superb atmosphere. Another option, accessible within a 7 minute walk, is the Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church with a heavenly rose carved window that illuminates the inner nave.
