Another wonderful example of Victorian engineering and architecture, I love driving under Holborn Viaduct which spans Farringdon Street. I always try to imagine the ‘lost’ River Fleet which would have flowed here (now converted to a subterranean sewer beneath the road). The Viaduct, built in 1869, primarily to make it easier for horse drawn carriages to make the ascent from Holborn to Ludgate Hill, is decoratively adorned with symbolic symbols of art, science and commerce.
