Tours and Visits

Visitors are welcome to walk around the precincts of the Inn, which are open Monday to Friday 7 am to 7 pm.  The Inn's buildings, however, are only open for organised tours, except for the Chapel which is open Monday to Friday 9 am to 5 pm.

Tours of the Inn, with registered guides, can be arranged through Charlotte de Silva: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Please give at least two weeks notice, preferably longer. Groups will normally comprise a minimum of 15 visitors.

The tours, which lasts between 60 minutes and 2 hours, will include, subject to availability, visits to the Old Hall, Great Hall and Chapel and the group will be briefed on the history, artwork and the current role of Lincoln’s Inn. The tours start in the morning at 10.30 am and in the afternoon at 2.30 pm. 

The assembly point is in the Chapel Undercroft where the guide will be waiting for you.

The meeting point for all tours is the Undercroft of the Chapel. Please note that Lincoln’s Inn is unable to provide storage 
facilities for visitors' bags, cases and coats. These must be carried by visitors at all times. Lincoln’s Inn is a large site comprising old buildings and not all areas are permanently accessible to disabled visitors. However, special access arrangements can usually be made if we are advised at least 2 days in advance.

There are no tours in August or at weekends and certain other days are also impractical, but there is scope for booking some months in advance.

Additionally, there is a Corporate Event Upsale - Talk or Tour, which is an add-on tour or talk to any event being held at the Inn.  Please contact the Events & Marketing Manager, Vicky Moull: This email address is being protected from spambots.
