In this illustrated volume, Andrew Goodman guides the reader around the lawyers' quarter of London on a series of walks, identifying historic and present day features and providing clear map directions.

This new edition is fully updated, with additions to the walks covering the restoraton of Temple Bar, the refurbishment of The Public Records Office site on Chancery Lane and new Supreme Court. The Da Vinci code book and film connections are also touched on.

London's legal history is rich and diverse, and the literature and pageantry surrounding it is equally impressive. The range and scope of the city's legal buildings, from the Inns of Court and Chancery and Serjeant's Inns to the Royal Courts of Justice and Central Criminal Court are testimony to the importance of law in London life.

Andrew Goodman guides the reader round the lawyer's quarter of London on a series of walks. With an unerring eye for detail, he identifies historic and present day features whilst providing clear map directions. Containing over 160 illustrations, mainly in colour and including interiors not normally available to the sightseer, this book offers an invaluable guide and a unique souvenir of a highly memorable aspect of London life.

Andrew Goodman has been in private practice at the Bar of England and Wales for over 25 years. Over that period he has written extensively on the court system, its history and architecture.
