The Great Hall

Closed until May 2019.

Opened by Queen Victoria in 1845, the Great Hall is the largest hall of any of the Inns and is considered to be one of the most distinguished buildings designed by Philip Hardwick working in the Tudor Revival style.

On the North Wall is a huge and magnificent fresco executed by G.F. Watts, the Pre-Raphaelite painter, showing the world’s law givers from Moses to Edward I.

The Bench Rooms are hired in conjunction with the hall and are used as reception areas.
(available to hire weekday evenings only and all day and evening at weekends)
