A prestigious Central London venue full of tradition and grandeur, Gray’s Inn is one of London’s hidden treasures, located next to Chancery Lane station. This historic venue offers six incredible event spaces, available for a wide variety of corporate and private events all year round. The Walks at Gray’s Inn are formed of five acres of private gardens – the perfect summer party venue. The Walks were originally laid out in 1608 by the then Treasurer, Sir Francis Bacon, whose statue can be seen in the South Square. The Walks remain among the largest private gardens in London: five acres of perfectly maintained park entered through a pair of impressive iron gates. Gray’s Inn has been home to lawyers since before 1388 AD and is today one of the four Inns of Court responsible for the education and training of barristers before and after their Call to the Bar. Tradition claims that the Great Screen was built from the timbers of the Nuestra Senora del Rosario, the flagship of the Andalucian Squadron of the Spanish Armada in 1588. Following its capture by the English it was broken up at Chatham and may have been the gift of Queen Elizabeth I or the Lord High Admiral of the Fleet, Lord Howard, a member of the Inn. Diagonal rope marks can be seen on the third pillar from the left. The screen was rescued from the Blitz in 1941 which destroyed the Hall roof.
