Tours of Lincoln’s Inn

Guided tours

We offer regular scheduled tours which individuals and small groups can book.  These take place weekly at 11 am. 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, and give you access to interior spaces usually only available to members of the Inn.

The cost is £15 per person.

Self-guided visits

Members of the public who are not able to attend a scheduled guided tour may purchase tickets for a self-guided tour of the Inn.  Tickets cost £7.50 and provide access to the Library and Great Hall complex, in addition to the Chapel and Gardens.

Access is strictly limited to 10 am – 12 pm on weekdays, as the Great Hall is in use at other times.

Tickets can be purchased from the Enquiry Desk in the Library on the day.  The £7.50 ticket includes a £2.50 reduction on the cost of a Lincoln’s Inn guidebook.

Please note, self-guided tours are unlikely to be available from Wednesday 31 July until Wednesday 4 September because of building works taking place in the Inn.
