The round church is beautiful and typical of a Knights Templar church. However, the attraction here should not be a pretty building but the very interesting history it stems from. Mr. Brown did raise the worlds consciousness level about the Knights Templar, but it is...More

We’ve been coming here for their nativity play ever since our eldest grandson could crawl, now some nine years. It’s difficult to imagine a less likely and yet more perfect setting for such a chaotic but glorious family occasion with dozens of children running around...More

Interesting church with it's association with the Knight's Templer. Normally open to the public but sadly closed when I visited as a wedding was about to take place. Impressive outside but not easy to find (or get out of) and badly sign posted.

We were lucky in that our visit coincided with a daily service. This is a really old and historic church with an amazing history and it is an easy walk to get to

Centre of dreary London has a church that is round in shape. Clearly, eastern architectural influence. All good with the church, history and what have you. My choir days are remembered. Not many of my fellow choir boys would believe I visited.

I had always wanted to visit this church since seeing The Da Vinci Code and am very glad I did. The church is quaint little medieval church just off Fleet Street, tucked away from the main road. The highlight are the effigies of medieval knights...More

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

This little church is hard to find, but I was determined at I have a great-grandfather buried there in the round section. The entry fee is nominal (5 quid when we went). There is quite a bit to see inside such a demure little church....More

“The City” is one of London's most historic and

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.
