Lincoln's Inn is one of the four Inns of Court (the others being Inner Temple, Middle Temple and Gray's Inn), which make up the professional association of barristers in England and Wales, and all barristers must belong to one of them. They have the sole right to train law students as barristers in England and Wales.
Lincoln's Inn is the oldest of the four, and dates all the way back to 1422.
Whilst visitors are welcome to walk around the precincts for free (7 AM to 7 PM, Mon to Fri), if you want to look inside the buildings themselves then you will have to join one of these organised tours (or become a law student!).
The tours include the Old Hall, Great Hall and Chapel, where you will learn about the history of the Inn and its artwork, and how Lincoln's Inn is used today.
