Middle Temple Hall and 2 Temple Place SOLD OUT
Guided Tour | Middle Temple Hall
Monday 2 February 2015 - 11:00 until 15:00
In 1608, James I granted the land and buildings of the Temple to two of England’s four ancient societies of lawyers, the Inns of Court. Guests will have a privately guided tour of Middle Temple visiting the private Bench apartments and Hall. We will then enjoy a three course buffet lunch in the Great Hall, probably the finest of the surviving Elizabethan halls, completed in 1570.
Afterwards we will take a short walk down the lane to 2 Temple Place, the magnificent neo-Gothic mansion, built by William Waldorf Astor on the Victoria Embankment for a guided tour of the house and temporary exhibition ‘The Extraordinary Hidden Collections of the Industrial Northwest’.
Includes coffee/tea and biscuits on arrival, 3 course buffet lunch.
This event has been organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
