Between royalty at Westminster & commerce in the City, mediaeval lawyers found a quiet niche in which to practise their craft. Come on a fascinating journey as we visit Legal London.

During the morning we are on foot to trace the history and peculiar practices of English Law in an area of London that remains hidden to most visitors. We visit Lincoln's Inn where no one should ask for whom the bell tolls.
Staple Inn where wool was weighed and taxed before the Great Fire and ends up in Carey Street the former home of the Bankrupt Courts. We will then stop for a one course pub lunch which you have a choice of Fish and chips, Lemon & thyme chicken breast with seasonal veg or the Vegetarian roasted butternut squash with fete cheese and puy lentil salad.

In the afternoon we visit the Royal Courts of Justcie otherwise know as the High Court and explore Inner and Middle Temple where Rumpole of the Bailey had his chamber. We go inside the spectacular round church of the Knights Templar to see the life size stone tomb effigies of the fighting monks.

The tour will finish at the Supreme Court Cafe with time to buy refreshments before heading home.
