Lady Liverymen and Lady Freemen Summer Lunch

walks4Lady Liverymen and Lady Freemen are usually invited every year to lunch together around the beginning of July, in the marquee in the Walks at Gray’s Inn. The Honourable Society of Gray’s Inn is one of London’s hidden treasures. It was founded over 600 years ago and is an oasis of calm steeped in histories of tradition. Today they offer the finest facilities and impressive corporate conference and private function services in a magnificent and welcoming setting.

Gray’s Inn gardens are known as The Walks and were originally designed in 1606 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. The park provides a walks2peaceful oasis amidst the busy streets of Central London and is available throughout the year. During the summer The Walks are equipped with a graceful and elegant marquee which is hard floored and carpeted throughout.
