The area
Neighbourhood: 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.

Brought here on a walking tour and it was amazing. Plenty of historic buildings with some wonderful gardens; an oasis just seconds from the hubbub of Fleet Street. The Church of Middle Temple is somewhere you can't miss.

I spent 39 years working in this Inn of Court. As a visitor you will not gain easy access to the barristers' chambers but you might be able to wander around the gardens and, if you book the facilities for a wedding or other event, you will have access to some comfortable surroundings. Not ancient because the Hall was rebulit after wartime bombs but full of legal interest. Temple Church is in there as well.

Visited this event as part of the chelseafringe.com calendar of events. Great welcome on arrival at the gardens with good signage from temple station. Child oriented afternoon but beautiful gardens to explore and plants and foliage were stunning. The trees were such a focus and the children were having great fun tree climbing in a controlled safe environment. Weather not on our side but a very pleasant visit. Also saw some other garden areas as we made our way out of the Inner Temple complex. Beautiful buildings to see as well with stunning architecture

Prize winning, graceful, historical, listed garden, which is open free to visitors weekdays at lunchtime. Celebrated internationally in newspaper and magazine articles, it is a lovely well kept secret.

What a gem this is, an oasis of peace and tranquility hidden away between two of London’s busiest streets, The Embankment and Fleet Street. It really is like stepping back a couple of centuries, or even more. The gardens are lovely all the year round. A highlight is the magnificent Temple Church with its ancient Knights Templar and modern Da Vinci Code connections. But equally spectacular are both the Middle Temple and Inner Temple Halls. This space is open to the public every day, but at weekends access is only possible through the manned gate at the end of Tudor Street.

We strolled through, both from the Fleet Street entrance to the Embankment, and in reverse. Both routes most pleasant and tranquil.

Many law chambers are to be seen, as it is one of the Four Inns of Court. To practice as a barrister one must belong to one of these.

The Temple Church is beautiful with lovely facades and surrounds. Also outstanding is the Temple Hall rising skywards. The original was replaced with the new one opening in 1870.

Just had a group tour of the Inner Temple in London. All Barristers must be a member of one of the so-called inns of Court , Gray's Inn, Lincoln's Inn, Middle Temple, and Inner Temple. A tool gives you a quick introduction to the history of law in the United Kingdom. The inner temple is in a beautiful area just between the famous Fleet Street and the embankment. If you don't know it's there you would never think of visiting that area. If you you will find cobble streets, beautiful gardens and it is just so quiet!
The tour will cost £12 and you get a quick tour of main building including the fabulous dining hall, finishing up in the wonderful and unique temple church just off Fleet Street.
The temple church is famous as the church of the Knights Templar and you will see within the church a brief but comprehensive view of the history of the Knights Templar and their role in the Crusades and their subsequent persecution by the Catholic Church.
We had a great guide. After the tour we all went and had lunch in the lovely Old Bank of England pub in Fleet Street

On my first day in London, trying to navigate my way from the hotel to Fleet Street, took a wrong turn and discovered the courtyards and the Garden of the Inner Temple.

During my stay, took several walks through this area, admiring the amazing architecture and lovely garden.

The garden is a such a tranquil place. One of my favorite stumbled-upon finds, briefly escape from the hubbub of the city and take in the view of the blooming flowers and fresh earthy scents, such a lush garden!

Secure area of London that is home to many of the legal offices. The interest for me, though, was the architecture. The gardens also offer a nice break from the hectic pace of the city.

Whilst in London again, undertook yet another long walk from Trafalgar Square up the Strand to Fleet Street.
As we entered Fleet Street, we diverted slightly from our intended route to take a look at the Inner Temple which is home to a number of legal chambers. The most appealing part of the Inner Temple for us was the medium -sized, well-maintained garden area. It was very pleasant to be able to sit there and take a rest for 15 minutes or so, away from the traffic and noise of Fleet Street.
The buildings of the Inner Temple feature some wonderful old architecture. It was a pleasure to be able to walk through the various courtyard and cloister areas
Certainly worthy of popping in to take a look if you happen to be in the area!
