The Inn occupies most of the 11 acre rectangle formed by High Holborn on the north, the Royal Courts of Justice on the south, Chancery Lane on the east and Lincoln’s Inn Fields on the west.

Lincoln’s Inn is in Central London. 

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

The most convenient tube 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 Holborn Underground, exit into 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.

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

On weekdays (7.00 am – 7.00 pm)

From Chancery Lane, 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

From Chancery lane, 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.

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.
