Description of Garden Court Chambers

Garden Court Chambers comprises four Grade I listed buildings at 57-60 Lincoln's Inn Fields, London WC2.

Originally built in the 17th (59-60) and 18th (57-58) centuries, the buildings were converted internally for use as one during the 20th century. The buildings have also had a varied list of owners and occupiers including Lord Montagu, the patron of Samuel Pepys, John Forster, best friend to Charles Dickens, and Spencer Perceval, who is the only British Prime Minister to have been assassinated (in 1812). Famous architects such as Isaac Ware and John Soane have carried out work to the buildings which may still be seen. These include a fine example of one of the few remaining elliptical staircases, built by Soane.

Today, the sensitively modernised premises mix 21st-century office fittings with mid-17th-century detail in the heart of Lincoln’s Inn Fields (London’s largest public square) which offers a tranquil haven from the bustle of London.

The nearest tube station is Holborn.

Garden Court Chambers will take part of Open House London weekend on 16-17 September 2017. The weekend gives the public the opportunity to see the 17th and 18th-century buildings completely free of charge.

Garden Court Chambers was founded over 40 years ago, and is the largest chambers in London with just over 180 leading barristers, including 20 QCs. Garden Court has a proud history of winning ground-breaking cases of constitutional importance. Our legal challenges have overturned great injustices in many landmark decisions. Equally, our barristers fight hard for clients in countless cases that don’t hit the headlines, but are nonetheless vital for defending the rights of those we represent.

Entry is by guided tour. These start on the hour:

Saturday 16 September: 10:00 – 16:00
Sunday 17 September: 10:00 – 13:00

Open House London is London’s biggest architectural festival giving everyone the opportunity to visit over 700 buildings, new and old, completely free of charge. Many of these are normally closed to the public. For more details, including other buildings participating in the weekend, please visit the Open House website.
