One of the four ancient Inns of Court, Middle Temple was built between 1562 and 1573 and remains one of the finest Elizabethan Halls in the country. The Middle Temple has been a home for legal professionals since it was first built. Our tour will take us into the Middle Temple Hall with its magnificent double hammer beam roof and stained glass memorial windows. Generations of royalty have all dined on the 29ft oak High Table - reputedly a gift from Elizabeth I. Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Francis Drake have been known to dine in the Hall. It is also said that the first recorded performance of Twelfth Night took place here in 1602.
Our visit will commence with tea, coffee and biscuits at 11am followed promptly by the tour at 11.30 am, which will last approximately one hour.
