The Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn is one of four Inns of Court in London where barristers are called to the bar.

The chapel at Lincoln’s Inn was first mentioned in 1428, with a later chapel built in 1620 by Inigo Jones, one of the first significant English architects of the early modern period who also designed the famous Banqueting House of Whitehall Palace. In 1797 the chapel was extensively rebuilt, and again in 1883.

The chapel is built on an open Gothic fan-vaulted undercroft that functioned as a crypt for benchers (a member of the Council and the governing body of the Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn), a meeting place and place of recreation.
