Middle Temple information
From the Strand, look for a studded black door labelled ‘Middle Temple Lane’, opposite the Royal Courts building, and you’ll find yourself in the sprawling complex surrounding the Temple Church and the Elizabethan Middle Temple Hall. The church was originally planned and built by the secretive Knights Templar in the mid-12th century; the hall was pieced together bit by bit after being blown to smithereens during WWII. There are wonderful gardens and courtyards at every turn. At the weekend enter from the Victoria Embankment.
