The Garden Guide

Lincoln's Inn Fields

Lincoln's Inn Fields was first laid out as a residential garden square, by Inigo Jones in 1618. The garden, of 7.25 acres, was opened to the public in 1895. The surrounding houses are now mostly solicitors' offices, though Sir John Soane's house is now a museum of antiquities and very well worth visiting. Lord William Russell was executed in Lincoln's Inn Fields in 1688. In the 1970s the garden was a squatters' encampment. Lincoln's Inn Fields is now largest garden square in London,and is managed by the London Borough of Camden.
