Student Tours

This page relates to tours for prospective student members of the Inn, or those currently studying law at undergraduate level. 
For information on booking a tour as a member of the public please click here.


The best way to get a feel for the Middle Temple and what we have to offer to students is to come and have a look for yourselves.

Tours are complimentary, but must be booked in advance. Please note there are some times of the year when the hall is closed and tours are not possible (e.g. Easter, Summer Holidays and Christmas Holidays), please contact us to discuss availability.

We ask for students when attending tours to respect the professional environmental and dress accordingly. Dress to be smart causal, clean and no ripped clothing. No shorts, track suits and preferably no trainers. Jeans can be worn but must be smart and clean, and not ripped.


Group tours (up to 20 people)

We encourage undergraduates and Sixth Form students to organise group visits to the Inn. A typical format would include an introduction from a member of the Education Department’s team, with plenty of opportunity for questions and answers about the history of the Inn and all the steps involved in becoming a barrister. We may also be able to offer lunch in Hall at a subsidised rate.

For enquiries about group tours please contact Richard Frost on

The meeting point for Group Tours is the entrance to Middle Temple Hall. Front of House staff are on duty in the Lodge and will greet you and notify your guide of your arrival.


Tours for individuals or small groups (up to 5 people)

If you are trying to decide which Inn to join and would like to have a tour to learn about the services we provide to our student members contact Richard Frost on

The meeting point for individual and small group tours is the entrance to the entrance to the Library at the Ashley Building on Middle Temple Lane. Front of house staff will greet you and notify your guide of your arrival.


Open Day for schools and universities
