Inns of Court


Close to the Royal Courts of Justice in the old City of London, the four Inns of Court are the expert partners for attorneys in England and Wales. Each is a complex of structures and gardens, with the last a blend of memorable appeal and sophistication. The internal Temple nurseries include a few 70-yard long mixed borders planted for all year enthusiasm, a Wars of the Roses garden border and spring bulbs in abundance (legend has it that the war began here.) The Elm court connects the Inner and Middle Temple. The Elizabethan Hall is fronted by a planted patio, while the Fountain Court has four Millenium Beds, an antiquated mulberry, and flaunts what is likely London's first permanent fountain. Lincoln's Inn, the oldest of the four, has 2.9 hectares of lawn and gardens, old trees, and a re-established garden border. Spread out by Sir Francis Bacon in 1606, 'the Walks' at Gray's Inn are today increasingly casual, with an avenue of American red oaks (Quercus rubra) amongst other trees.
