Westminster Hall - Hastings Westminster Hall

Plaque: Westminster Hall - Hastings


On this spot Warren Hastings stood his trial 1788 - 1795. He was acquitted on all the charges.

Site: Westminster Hall (9 memorials)

SW1, St Margaret Street, Westminster Hall

These 9 plaques are laid into the floor of the hall, in a line down the middle, in this sequence, starting at the entrance end: R101; Hastings; Wentworth; More; Churchill; King Edward VII; Gladstone; King George VI & Queen Elizabeth; and King George V & Queen Mary.

Since capturing these 9 we've seen more on the stairs at the southern end of the hall. Need to visit again.
