Two Temple Place is temporarily closed until further notice. Please check the venue's website for the latest details.

A neo-Gothic Victorian mansion built for William Waldorf Astor on London's Embankment.

The house was designed by John Loughborough Pearson and was intended to be used as Astor’s estate office. Astor had emigrated to England in 1891 and, as arguably the richest man in the world, he spared no expense on the work for Two Temple Place.

In addition to the opulent interior, when it was finished in 1895 Two Temple Place contained the largest strong room in Europe as well as two other enormous fortified safes. Today it hosts annual exhibitions showcasing museum and art gallery collections from outside of London.
