   Gray's Inn Field
Gray's Inn Gardens has a multiple personality disorder. The sign on the gate describes it thus. Look on the NFT map and it's described as Gray's Inn Field but traditionally its known as Gray's Inn Walks. Whatever it is, its nice. Francis Bacon is responsible, having laid it out in 1606. One obvious thing to point out--you're surrounded by lawyers on 3 sides. The Masters of the Bench allow 'adult members of the public' in for a stroll between 12 noon and 2.30 pm, which presumably means you can get any screaming kids ejected if they disturb your lunchtime peace and you're feeling a bit unkind. Admittedly, I went for the virgin snow that had fallen that day, which I tramped through happily enjoying the slight crunch and give of it under my boots. It looks even more lovely in the summer though--check out their website. All was still and peaceful and serene. Twenty minutes there was enough to clear the fog in my head that the central heating and several hours of brainstorming had produced. London bustles all around it, but inside all is calm.
