Meet outside The Royal Courts of Justice at 11.15am and the Bank of England Museum at 1.45pm.
Our day will begin with a guided tour of the Royal Courts of Justice. This stunning Victorian building is where some of the country’s most significant legal judgements are made. You will hear about some of the secret stories of its construction and learn about the fascinating characters who have worked there.
You will then enjoy a guided walk through the hidden alleyways and courtyards of the Inns of Court, the traditional ‘home’ of barristers in England and Wales. Follow in the footsteps of some of the country’s most renowned legal minds, marvel at the architecture and appreciate the tranquillity of the enclosed courtyards.
After lunch we will meet at the Bank of England Museum and attend a private presentation giving a brief history of the Bank since it was founded in 1694. There will also be the opportunity to ask questions about the Bank and what it does, both now and in the past. You will then have free time to explore the museum’s five different galleries.
