  • Visitor Information

The picturesque gardens at Gray's Inn are known as The Walks. Originally designed in 1606 by the Treasurer of Gray's Inn, Sir Francis Bacon, whose statue can be seen in the South Square, the gardens are the perfect backdrop for an al fresco lunch or special dining occasion at The Griffin Restaurant. This is a peaceful sanctuary with a truly peaceful ambience, hidden away from the bustling streets of the surrounding city, yet just a five-minute walk from Chancery Lane station and offering ample car parking facilities. This five-acre secluded and private garden is equipped with an elegant marquee offering opportunities for private and corporate summer events from champagne receptions and Mediterranean barbecues, to wedding receptions and formal dinner-and-dancing in the evenings.
