LEGAL LONDON -
Now including the Vox Wireless Tour Guide System.
Between royalty at Westminster & commerce in the City, mediaeval lawyers found a quiet niche in which to practise their craft. They’re still here in a part of London hidden to most visitors. Come on a fascinating journey as we visit Legal London. The day runs from 10.30am to 4.30pm and includes morning coffee with the option to add lunch. Legal London is also available as a Jam Buster to help you avoid the rush hour at both ends of the day -
Come at 10.30am for morning coffee included in the tour fee. During the morning we are on foot to trace the history and peculiar practices of English law in an area of London that remains hidden to most visitors. We visit Lincoln’s Inn where no one should ask for whom the bell tolls, Staple Inn where wool was weighed and taxed before the Great Fire and end up in Carey Street the former home of the Bankruptcy Courts.
Add a one course pub lunch or have free time for lunch on Fleet Street which gives some extra time to enjoy the RAF church of St Clement Danes (oranges & lemons say the bells...) and the rather wonderful Twinings Tea shop -
In the afternoon we visit the Royal Courts of Justice otherwise known as the High Court and explore Inner and Middle Temple where Rumpole of the Bailey had his chamber. We go inside the spectacular round church of the Knights Templar to see the life size stone tomb effigies of the fighting monks. An entry fee for the church is included in the tour fee.
Time to buy tea on Fleet Street before heading out of London at 4.15/30pm ahead of the rush hour.
Jam Buster Option Arrive midday for free time for lunch on Fleet Street. Enjoy the full tour as described, break half way to buy a cuppa and at the end of the tour sit together for fish & chips with a hot drink in an attractive pub before heading home at 6.30pm on emptier roads after the rush hour. This option is also £39pp at senior r ate and £41 for adults. The Jam Buster is not a half day tour, it’s the full unabridged tour and includes the Vox headsets.
