Visit to Legal London - note new date

The Society’s Vice-Chairman, Charles George QC, has organised this visit for up to 30 persons. Within this total, Society members may bring up to one guest each.

We shall meet outside Middle Temple Hall (accessed from Fleet Street) at 10.45 (this will enable individual travel to Charing Cross, from which the Temple is a 20 minute walk along the Strand; or take the District/Circle lines from Embankment to Temple).

The visit will start with a guided tour of Middle Temple Hall (completed 1573, where Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night was first performed) and the adjoining Parliament Chamber and other rooms. We shall then visit the Temple Church (c.1162) with its splendid effigies of recumbent knights and later Wren features. We shall then do a quick walk through Inner Temple.

There will be a break for lunch (which can be taken either in one of the pubs/sandwich bars in Fleet Street or, weather-permitting, in the magnificent gardens of the Inner Temple, stretching down to the Victoria Embankment).

At 2.15 we will visit the Royal Courts of Justice (where the civil and criminal divisions of the Court of Appeal sit, along with the civil work of the High Court). The visit will end with an optional short visit to Lincoln’s Inn (lying between Lincoln Inn Fields and Chancery Lane).

Around 3.30 the visit will end, leaving time to catch the return train from Charing Cross before the evening peak period.

Booking will open on 1 July, on a first come, first served basis (see booking form below). The cost will be £25 per person, which will cover all costs other than travel and lunch.

Please bring minimum baggage, not least because there are security screens to go through at the RCJ.
