About this place
Lincoln's Inn Fields is the largest public square in London. It was laid out in the 1630s under the initiative of the speculative builder and contractor William Newton, "the first in a long series of entrepreneurs who took a hand in developing London", as Sir Nikolaus Pevsner observes.

Tips from locals
Nice green space to picnic. Has some historic legal properties around its boundaries. Nice café to stop at for a coffee or Pizza. Tennis courts are here for rent too.
Clerkenwell isn't exactly a leafy area but we are very close to the Inns of Court. These are the barrister chambers that are more like Oxford Colleges than a law office. They are certainly worth a stroll through. The squares tend to be locked in the evening but go during the day and feel like you…
9 mins walk - laid out in the 1630s is the largest public square in London. Lincoln's Inn Fields has a rich and varied history. In 1683 it was the site of the public beheading of Lord William Russell, son of the First Duke of Bedford.
Great retreat if you're tired of walking around busy streets. This is where the LSE students come to chill out, do yoga and escape their academic chores
Expansive enclosed square, designed by Inigo Jones in the 17th century, with lawn and tennis courts. -
