Chancery Lane is a one-way street the City of London, close to the financial district and in the heart of the legal district. It has formed the western boundaries of "The City". Historically, the street was associated with the legal profession and within walking distance to Lincoln's Inn, where many barristers of England and Wales keep their offices. Other than the historical aspect and significance of this street, it's much like any other street in the city. Busy on workdays and quiet on weekends. Plenty of shops, eateries and bars for the hard workers of the city, though not usually opened at the weekends. Some interesting looking buildings to see, but nothing an average tourist should go out of the way to see. An interesting bit of trivia about this street is "Ede and Ravenscroft", the oldest tailors in London, have their main, historic shop and offices at Number 93.

I have walked along this street many, many times. In honesty it is not somewhere you would suggest a visitor to London to go to. It is more one of those roads you would use to get from A > B while walking around London. I think I have generally walked along it if I have been in "The City" /St Paul's areas and want to get to more of the tourist areas such a Covent Garden & The West End. It is however an interesting road with many old buildings & quirky old traditional London Pub's. It is also associated with the Legal Profession and you will spot shops/retailers selling gowns & wigs which is fairly interesting to see.

This road is not much of an attraction in itself. Some of the architecture is interesting but there are some hidden attractions especially the London Silver Vaults at the North end and Lincoln's Inn to the West.

Our most recent visit to London involved a series of enjoyable long walks through the central area of the this great city. One day while walking along Fleet Street towards St. Paul's Cathedral, we took a major deviation for a stroll along Chancery Lane. We had undertaken a similar walk during a previous stay in London and had particularly enjoyed what this lane had to offer. In particular, the impressive architecture of some of the old building located here and associated with the legal profession is most appealing. While Chancery Lane does carry a great deal of road traffic, it is a one-way street which makes crossing over from one side to the other, less daunting than on other busy streets in the city. Well worth a visit if you happen to have an interest in either architecture or the legal world!

Chancery Lane runs from Holbourn to Fleet Street and has retained some very old buildings retailing. Quite a few formal gentleman's clothing shops and some shops selling gowns and legal associated clothing further down. I did notice some very nice old pubs that sell good old English beers and ales.
