Guided tours are available around the historic and awe-inspiring buildings of Middle Temple. You will feel as though you are going back in time as you walk down cobbled lanes flanked with gas street lamps towards one of the finest Elizabethan Halls in the country.

The tour will take you into Middle Temple Hall with its magnificent double-hammer beam roof which was completed in 1573. Generations of royalty have all dined on our 29ft oak High Table – reputedly a gift from Elizabeth I herself. Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Francis Drake have been known to dine in Hall. It is also said that the first-recorded performance of Twelfth Night took place in Hall in 1602.

Tours are subject to availability and must be pre-booked through the Events Department. A minimum number of 10 people are required for a tour which costs £12.00 per person. Tours last approximately one hour.
