Middle Temple is open to the public during the week. You can walk down Middle Temple Lane from Fleet Street to the River Thames. It is very atmospheric with beautiful buildings and the gardens look amazing at the moment.

Lots of medieval history associated with this building. Book a tour but beware as we had to stand throughout the hour's lecture.

Beautiful setting, with standard setting architecture on display. Twelfth Night debuted here and easy to understand why. Lunch is a solemn affair mixing with barristers and tourists to done across a slightly above average menu, delivered in a well above average way, in top drawer surroundings. I am drawn here regularly.

Was fortunate to attend a lovely event held here - the food was surprisingly good! The atmosphere was pure English History - Shakespeare performed Twelfth Night here - and portraits of royalty abound. If you have an English crest you would find a plaque of it here - never knew there were so many. When you are in the main... More

Had a large meeting in the great hall. The building is fantastic and from the 1500 A lot of history in the building and still very well preserved. The service was great and the food fantastic when dining in the great hall. On the walls a lot of old paintings of kings and queens who had dined in the hall.

If you'd like to have lunch in one of the most iconic venues in London, this is it. Basically, a barrister canteen so prices are very reasonable. This where Twelfth Night was first performed and Elizabeth I used to dine here - how good can it get for not too much money?

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
