The Old Hall

Open for bookings during refurbishment period.

The Old Hall is a wonderful example of beautifully maintained Tudor architecture and has many notable features including the wooden screen at the south end, designed by Inigo Jones, and Hogarth’s painting of “Paul before Felix” on the North wall.

The Old Hall is the setting for the opening scene of Bleak House, Charles Dickens - “London. Michaelmas Term lately over and the Lord Chancellor sitting in Lincoln’s Inn Hall….Fog everywhere.”

The Crypt beneath the Old Hall was for centuries used for storage of fuel, food and wine. Now the brick groin vaulting has been restored to its former glory and is used as a reception area (available to hire all day and evening on weekdays and weekends).
