Two tours in one day which begin at 11 a.m. with a guided tour round the historic buildings of Middle Temple, its cobbled lanes, gas street lamps and magnificent Hall, one of the finest examples of an Elizabethan Hall in London.

There will be a break for lunch which may be taken in the Inn itself at an additional cost of £20 (please request at time of booking). Alternatively guests may wish to use the time to explore the nearby Churches of Temple and St. Brides.

In the afternoon meet outside Two Temple Place at 3pm for a tour of one of William Waldorf Astor's London residences. One of the richest men in the world at the time, Astor's flagship office was designed by the architect, John Loughborough Pearson and was built in 1895. A celebration of late-Victorian design and virtuoso craftsmanship, Two Temple Place reveals Astor to be an exceptionally cultured individual with fastidious taste. The gloriously detailed sculptural ornamentation and displays of rare and lavish materials used in the building's design show that no expense was spared either!
