Bike-part streets 2 of 10: Bell Yard
Where is it?
Off Fleet St, next to the Royal Courts of Justice, just across from Pump Court.
What’s it like?
A narrow lane with a pedestrian bit at its southern end blocking off traffic – and bikes – from Fleet St. There are several bike racks.
Why bike there?
It's the quickest way by bike north from Middle and Inner Temple to delightful Lincoln's Inn, the next Inn of Court. In Lincoln's Inn Fields there's a free public toilet with bike parking right outside, which may be handy if you've dropped into the Wetherspoons just north of Bell Yard.
Is it a good place to ring your bell?
Not especially. You won’t hear it above the Fleet St traffic.
