Ren­tal man­ager Luke Mel­lor, from estate agents CBRE Res­i­den­tial, says there is huge de­mand from students ev­ery sum­mer for ren­tal homes in Holborn, es­pe­cially for­eign students en­rolled at the Lon­don School of Eco­nomics. Their par­ents, of­ten wealthy, tend to seek out twobed­room flats so they have some­where to stay when they visit.

At other times of the year, City work­ers and bar­ris­ters are look­ing for one-bed­room flats, which are of­ten only oc­cu­pied dur­ing the work­ing week. The Rugby Estate has homes to rent in the roads around Lamb’s Con­duit Street, some of them in fine early Ge­or­gian houses, and these are pop­u­lar with doc­tors at Great Or­mond Street Hospi­tal.
