The impressive Hall in the Square dates from 1560 and was the venue for the first performance of Shakespeare's play, A Comedy of Errors in 1594. Near the Hall are the Raymond Buildings where Charles Dickens worked as a solicitor's clerk. His time here greatly influenced his work, and Gray's Inn provided a setting for parts of the action in many of his novels, including Martin Chuzzlewit and David Copperfield.
