Such a beautiful place in the heart of London, the whole Temple grounds are like another world, away from the hustle and bustle of a very busy city, peaceful, charming and interesting. The church is well worth a visit with the circular nave a particular...More

Great visit, the few of exhibits were wonderful. The effigies of William Marshal and others were worth the visit. If you do visit be sure to take the trip up the winding staircase and view the church from the rotunda

The Knights Templar built this church in the 12th century and King John used this church. Much history is attatched to this church and is a wonder to visit. Beware, closed at weekends.

Look at the Transport for London (TfL) Web site and you'll find the relevant buses. Or open up Google Maps and you can see the bus stops near the Temple on Fleet Street and The Embankment.
