Two Temple Place

Marvel at symbolic and cultural carvings adorning the façade and halls of this neo-Gothic masterpiece and browse eclectic art exhibitions.

Two Temple Place is a historic building containing prestigious artworks in a public gallery. The 19th-century structure has a majestic façade of late Victorian style with carvings and a weather vane. Capture photos of this iconic building that adds to the varied architecture of London.

Enter through the iron gates and appreciate the elegance of the forecourt and lawn. Note the bronze lamp statues of cherubs that flank the door. The building, which is constructed entirely from Portland stone, has a neo-Gothic style. Admire the Renaissance carvings that adorn the stone-lined vestibule.

Make your way to the ornate Great Hall, which has high ceilings and exquisite décor. Marble floors, Persian rugs and chandeliers add to the splendor. Inspect the hall’s mahogany portal for its decorative panels in silver gilt and see the spectacular stained-glass windows.

Browse the various works of art on show during temporary exhibitions, which feature all manner of themes and displays.

Note that the house was initially built in 1895 for American businessman and politician William Waldorf Astor. It then passed through the hands of several businesses, before opening as a public gallery in 2011.

Take a break at the Tangerine Dream café, which serves hot drinks, refreshments and cakes. Check out the range of items, including original artworks, for sale in the shop.

Two Temple Place is open to the public only during exhibitions. Consult the gallery’s official website for a schedule of exhibitions, which mostly occur from January through April. There is no fee to visit the art gallery.

Located in central London, Two Temple Place is on the northern flank of the River Thames. Ride the Tube to Temple Station and walk east for 2 minutes to get here or take a river taxi to Blackfriars Millennium Pier. Visit nearby attractions, such as the H.Q.S. Wellington, the Temple Church and Somerset House.
