"Lincoln's Inn" Historical Tip by yooperprof
Historical, London: 219 reviews and 548 photos
Favorite thing: You won't find luxury accomodations at Lincoln's Inn - unless you are in the Bar! London has four "Inns of Court" - the others being Inner Temple, Middle Temple, and Gray's Inn. All are "great and good" medieval establishments for the study and practice of the Common Law. Lincoln's Inn is the largest and the best preserved, having escaped World War II without major damage. It's a place to feel connected with the past and with the generations of lawyers and legal scholars who have lived and worked in its buildings.
Lincoln's Inn Fields is the largest public square in Central London. Many historic and interesting houses are here, including Sir John Soane's Museum. There used to be the most amazing collection of tall plane trees in the square, but many of them were toppled during the Hurricane of 1987.
