We will visit The Royal Courts of Justice in the morning, this guided tour will include The Great Hall, viewing original court documents relating to ‘Guy Fawkes’, an exhibition of legal costumes, history about the fabulous Art, including works by Wright, Lawrence and Shee and a history of the RCJ’s famous cases and Inquiries.

 

In the afternoon we will visit Sir John Soane’s Museum. Sir John Soane (1753 – 1837) was one of the most inventive architects of his time and an avid collector. He built the Bank of England and Dulwich Picture Gallery, as well as his own extraordinary home by buying, demolishing and rebuilding three houses in Lincoln’s Inn Fields. He displayed his acquisitions in creative, eclectic ways in his home and four years before he died he negotiated an Act of Parliament to preserve his house and collection, exactly as it would be at the time of his death and to keep it open and free for inspiration and education. We will have an introductory talk followed by a self-guided tour of the Museum.

 

Bookings will be taken at the March and April lectures.
