Tour
  • Fri 07th Jun 2024
  • 10:50

Physical event
  • Middle Temple Lane, Temple, London EC4Y 9BT

Join us on Friday 7 June 2024 for a tour in the heart of legal London as we visit the Middle Temple, one of four Inns of Court to which barristers must belong and the Royal Courts of Justice, home of the Court of Appeal. Guests should arrive at 10:50am at the entrance to the Middle Temple, in advance of our tour at 11am of this centuries-old historic complex. We will be led by an expert guide who will enlighten us about the past of the main aspects of the Middle Temple, a highlight of which will include the famous Middle Temple Hall. This 16th century building features a magnificent double-hammer beam roof completed in 1573, under which the first-recorded performance of the Shakespearean play Twelfth Night is said to have taken place.

Guests should note that the Middle Temple observes a dress code and attendees should wear smart casual dress on the day. By way of further guidance, the Middle Temple state: ...the dress code is less formal than business/lounge suit, but means specifically no jeans or trainers. For example trousers/skirt with a smart top, a dress, or trousers with a button-down shirt and jacket. A tie is optional. Shoes should be smart.

The tour will last approximately an hour and we will then break for lunch, weather permitting, in the tranquil surrounds of the Middle Temple Gardens. Lunch will be at the choice and cost of the guests, with plenty of cafes, restaurants and pubs available nearby for a bite to eat.

The Royal Courts of Justice are situated on the Strand, a short walk from the Middle Temple. We will reconvene in the entrance hall of the Courts at 1:50pm for a 2pm tour of this splendid Victorian building. Our tour will delve into its architecture and history, including some of the famous cases heard in the 140 years that justice has been dispensed in its halls. The day should conclude at approximately 3:15pm.

This fascinating day out in the heart of the legal profession in the City costs £ 29 per person.
