Spaces in Honourable Society of Lincoln's Inn
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. It creates a desirable setting ideal for receptions for up to 200 guests, seated lunches and dinners for up to 120 guests, and conferences, lectures, meetings, seminars and ceremonies for up to 130 guests.
Opened by Queen Victoria in 1845, the Great Hall, complete with striking fresco, minstrel's gallery and a ceiling of beautifully worked oak, is described as one of the most impressive surviving buildings of its kind in London and provides a spectacular setting for all types of events. Suitable for receptions for up to 450 guests, dinners for up to 250 guests, lectures and ceremonies for up to 300 guests and wedding receptions and dinner dances for up to 200 guests. The adjoining Bench Rooms and an east facing terrace overlooking impressive grounds is perfect for arrival receptions.
Opened in 2018 by Queen Elizabeth II, the Ashworth Centre is a purpose-built event space set beneath the Great Hall, expertly designed to allow natural daylight to flood the suite through generous skylights. The stylish double-height lecture theatre with retractable seating for up to 158 delegates features integrated audio-visual. Ten meeting rooms split across two floors may be booked individually for smaller meetings for up to 16 boardroom or 25 theatre, or the partition walls can be withdrawn allowing flexible multi-room formats for breakout spaces or refreshments.
Old Court Room
Venues for business meetings and seminars don't have to look dull, and this room proves it. As the room's name suggests, the Old Courtroom was used for legal purposes before being turned into a meeting space that retains the history of its past. With floor-to-ceiling shelves filled with books and captivating wall details, the space is an intriguing nod to its previous use, and will be a fascinating space for all attendees. The room is fully furnished to fit up to 50 people for meeting purposes.
Members' Common Room
The Members' Room offers an exceptional setting for your wedding ceremony and celebration. This room has a magnificent interior with arches dominating the space and light flooding through the windows. Enjoy exclusive use of the private bar and tasteful meals from a professional kitchen, and take advantage of a charming private terrace, which perfectly complements the room. The place itself can cater to up to 90 guests.
Summer Events on the North Lawn
Our North Lawn is the perfect setting for a summer reception or outside events for up to 200 guests. As this space has limited covering it also comes in conjunction to the Old Hall in case of adverse weather. The lawn is the perfect blank canvas space, with beautiful views over Stone Buildings and the rest of the Estate. The Lawn can be hired with our in house catering, or we do offer dry hire options for the space in conjunction with our preferred tent and marquee suppliers.
Summer Events on the Great Hall Terrace
Our Great Hall Terrace can hold up to 400 for a standing reception. The space is perfect for summer receptions and BBQs with views of the beautiful Great Hall building and rest of the Lincoln's Inn Estate. Hire of the Great Hall Terrace is from 1800-2100 on weekdays and is available to hire from 1200 on weekends. Hire of the Terrace comes with the Great Hall so in adverse weather the Great Hall can be used. After 2100 you can continue the party in the Great Hall until midnight.
