Visit to the historic Temple Church and Middle Temple Hall

| Temple Church and Middle Temple Hall

An exclusive opportunity to tour and have lunch in MIddle Temple Hall, built in 1574, with its double hammer beam roof, stained glass, portraits and rich carvings, where Shakespeare's Twelfth Night was first performed. After lunch, walk through this timeless haven where bewigged and gowned lawyers pass by against a backdrop of ancient buildings, to the Temple Church where the Master of the Temple, Robin Griffith-Jones, will himself give us an inspiring talk amongst the marble effigies of the chivalrous Knights Templars. The beautiful and numinous Round Church, consecrated in 1185 was built by the Knights, to recall the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. It is the church of the Inner and Middle Temples, two of the Inns of Court, encompassing 800 years of history, home to a community of believers at the heart of London's legal community.
