Local Tubes and Street Access    


Lincoln’s Inn is in Central London.  The main entrance to the precincts (24 hours) is at the southeast corner of Lincoln's Inn Fields at the junction with Serle Street, but there are also several pedestrian entrances (Monday - Friday, 7 am-7 pm) from Chancery Lane and Carey Street.

Please click here to view a map which details all accessible points of entry (marked with a D). There is only one vehicle access point and that is clearly marked on the map. Pedestrian gates are only open from 7 am to 7 pm on weekdays.

The Inn can be reached by underground from all major rail stations.  The most convenient stations are Holborn and Chancery Lane (not open on Sundays). Holborn is served by the Central Line and the Piccadilly Line; Chancery Lane by the Central Line.

From Chancery Lane Underground, exit the station on the south side. Turn right (west) until Chancery Lane is reached.

On weekdays (7 am–7 pm), turn left down Chancery Lane.  Fifty yards on the right is a small footpath into Stone Buildings. Walk down Stone Buildings until a small gate on the right appears, turn right; in front of you (70 yards) is a large flight of steps leading to the terrace of the Great Hall and Library building.  The Treasury Office Reception is indicated as you approach the top of the first flight of steps on the left hand side.  The entrance to the Great Hall and Library is up the second flight of stairs.

Outside working hours, continue up High Holborn to Penderel’s Oak public house and turn left into Great Turnstile; on exiting Great Turnstile Lincoln’s Inn Fields can be seen on the right and the wall to Lincoln’s Inn on the left.  Walk parallel to the wall until you reach the impressive Main Gate, where gate staff will direct you.

From Holborn Underground, exit onto Kingsway at the first set of traffic lights, turn left and enter Remnant Street.  Follow the north side of Lincoln’s Inn Fields, go straight ahead until you reach the wall of Lincoln’s Inn, turn right, walk parallel to the wall until the impressive Main Gate, where gate staff will direct you.

By Car

There are two ways to get into the Inn by car, but both enter through the Main Gate:

From Fleet Street, enter Chancery Lane from the southern end, turn first left into Carey Street and then first right into Serle Street and the Main Gate is on the right as Serle Street enters Lincoln’s Inn Fields.
From Kingsway, enter Remnant Street, continue straight along the north side of Lincoln’s Inn Fields, turn right on meeting the wall of the Inn and the Main Gate is 180 yards on the left.

By Bus

Many bus services stop at Holborn Underground and in Fleet Street, the Strand and High Holborn.  Details of bus routes can be found at: http://www.tfl.gov.uk/modalpages/2605.aspx
