Wonderful Round Church consecrated in 1185 and the Chancel in 1240 still in use today. There is so much to see and read about the Knights Templar and members of The Temple in more modern times. The interior is light, airy and restful. All this...More

The Temple Church is beautifully maintained (Round Church c.1185, the rest c.1240). Lots of interesting items including effigies of some of the knights. Exhibition about the first world war was very moving – such a waste of young lives on both sites of the conflict....More

This is well worth a visit - such a beautiful church. The walls had an exhibition on the Magna Carta and was very interesting. It is difficult to find- but we'll worth the walk

The Temple Church in London is a tricky to find, but once you do you are rewarded with a small, but pretty church which houses the remains of several knights including William Marshal. The best part is that not only is it free, but you...More

Even if you go to Temple tube station, it is not straightforward to find the narrow Middle Temple road from the Strand. The Church itself is tucked away in a courtyard. There is a small charge to enter the Church. There are only 4 medieval...More

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.
