History: Middle Temple Hall is one of the four ancient ‘Inns of the Court’. It was built between 1562 and 1573 and remains virtually unchanged to this day having survived the Great Fire of London and both World Wars. Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night was first performed her in 1602. It is arguably one of the finest examples of an Elizabethan hall in the country with a double hammer beam roof carved from the oak of Windsor Forest and an elaborately carved screen made in 1574.
Visiting Today: In addition to the hall, gardens adjoin which provide a peaceful setting with proximity to the Thames.While generally closed to the public, it is possible to book a meal at the hall by contacting the banqueting team on 020 7427 4820 or email email@example.com.
