Directions

Turn right into Guilford Place, opposite the entrance to Coram's Fields.

Continue up Lamb's Conduit Street, passing the Lamb pub and the Bikefix cycle shop, both on the left. Cross Theobold's Road (traffic lights) and continue to the end of Red Lion Street. Turn left into High Holborn.

If you are visiting Lincoln's Inn, dismount at the first signal-controlled pedestrian crossing, just before Penderel's Oak pub. Cross the street and walk through Great Turnstile into Lincoln's Inn Fields.

Description

Development of Lincoln's Inn Fields began in 1629. Gardens were laid out in 1735 but did not become a public park until 1894. The layout of the gardens today is largely that of the early 19c.
