LINCOLNS INN. Thursday 20th July 2023. £70.00pp

The Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn Guided Tour

Your tour of the Inn will be led by a member of the Inn’s staff and will last around 90 minutes.  Our estate comprises buildings from all 600 years of the Inn’s history, from late mediaeval to building work completed in 2019.  Your guide will explain how this architectural legacy reflects both the continuity of the Inn’s purpose and the changing nature of life at the Bar.

Starting at the late-mediaeval Old Hall, your tour will take in the Chapel (whose foundation stone was laid by the poet John Donne), a late 17th century London square, a palatial 18th century set of chambers and the Great Hall complex opened by Queen Victoria in 1845.

Your tour will give you access to interior spaces usually only available to members of the Inn. Highlights include*:

the setting for the opening of Charles Dickens’ Bleak House,   the Chapel interior with its fine 17th century layout and stained glass.  the magnificent Great Hall with a fresco by G.F. Watts and an art collection which includes works by William Hogarth, Sir Joshua Reynolds, Sir Thomas Lawrence, Mary Beale and John Singer Sargent.
