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.

Chancery Lane runs from High Holborn in the north to Fleet Street in the south passing on its western side Lincoln's Inn and Carey Street affording access to the Royal Courts of Justice via aside entrance which is much quieter than the main entrance in the Strand. For the past year or so it has been dogged by almost incessant construction work resulting in the partial closure of at least one pavement. For those seeking a meal The Knights' Templar and the Old Bank of England are grand boozers which have been joined more recently by s branch of Blanc Brasserie and a rival French restaurant called Biranis. The presence of the London Silver Vaults at the northern end reminds us we are but a stone's throw away from the jewellery district of Hatton Garden.

Chancery Lane connects Fleet Street with High Holborn. Historically, the street is associated with the legal profession. This continues to the present day with consulting firms and other business occupying the street now.

A very old street that has not been hit as hard by the 1960's knock-em-down and replace with concrete mania. Therefore, a good mix of architectural styles going back through the centuries.

Chancery lane is one of the oldest areas of London stretching around the tube station with the same name, and although there is not much to see around here, if you do not have any business here, you might know it because of the Hatton Garden jewellers street made famous because of the numerous jewellers or the recent heist featured in the media.

On Chancery lane itself, there are few building keeping their original characters, and further west you go, towards Holborn, fewer there will be.

This is where the City starts, although this area is known for some big law practices.

Chancery Lane might have some historical and architectural points to it but I tend to associate this part of London with the Jewelers. This is a great area to pick up a nice engagement ring or two.

Chancery Lane has a long historic relationship with the legal professional which has been in existence since the 1100s when the High Court of the Chancery started its association with the area. You can sense the security in this street that connects Fleet Street to High Holborn. There is the Law Society Building and England's oldest tailors here. There is also the legal outfitters store - something us outside of the legal profession don't stumble across every day. It was an interesting interlude on our afternoon stroll around the area.
