I look forward to this every year. A couple of tips: If you want to go to several places and fear you might not be able to fit them in, check that they are not open at other times in the year. Don't waste time choosing places that are far apart, as a certain amount of the day will probably be spent in waiting for entry - though this is generally not boring as people tend to chat. If you go to the City you will see lots of folk wandering about, guidebook in hand, and it' s useful to exchange information about length of queues etc.

Perhaps we could have an informal TALF meeting that Saturday evening, to tell each other where we've been.

I have only just heard about this, I'm in London that weekend and would really like to see some interesting legal buildings, does anybody know if there is any in the guide? I've sent off for it but it hasn't came yet and although the website was supposed to open this morning, I haven't been able to access it.

Thanks :)

I've still got last year's book, and they don't change much.

Last year, there was:

Garden Court Chambers, which is a barristers' chambers in Lincolns Inn Fields.

Gray's Inn.

Middle Temple Hall

The Royal Courts of Justice

Ha, Angel, you beat me - someone came to the door halfway through typing!

I like the idea of an informal TAFL meet.....
