Building From 1383 To 1897
One of the two Inns attached to Lincoln's Inn, the other being Thavie's Inn (which has a street and building just south of Holborn Circus). At Staple Inn we share with you our meagre understanding of what Inns are, or were.
During the 1820s the medieval building was completely replaced and it was in this new structure that Dickens had rooms. In 1897 that building also went, to be replaced with the magnificent red-brick Prudential Building that we have today.
