A great detour off the main drag...and not just for Dan Brown fans. Well worth a visit and an excellent WW1 exhibition running at present...brilliantly done.

This has been on our 'must visit' list for a few years and we never made the time until now. £5 entry fee per person was just the right price to make this feel worth it, without feeling that you were subsidizing something too much....More

We visited London in December, and attended an evening Christmas concert at the Temple Church. The tickets were very reasonable (£12), and allowed us to see the church (it was possible to view the church and its displays during intermission) and hear the concert. The...More

Had to hike a bit to get here, well off the beaten path. Very cool architecture on the outside. A bit creepy that the lights were all out and the organ was playing away, but we'd call that a part of the mystique of this...More

Located just off one of the London’s busiest thoroughfares this is a beautiful historic church. Inside are the sculptured tombs of the Knights Templar. There is also a viewing gallery upstairs that is worth the climb for the active visitor.

The outside of the building is gorgeous but not even remotely as beautiful as the inside! The history presentation within is spectacular. The gentleman at the desk was so informative and friendly. Will definately go back!

You do not need to pre-book or reserve an entry time. However, it is not open 24/7.

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.
