Tucked away behind the historic facades on Fleet Street, Temple is a somewhat secretive part of the capital famous for its legal connections. Hidden in plain sight between Blackfriars and the Embankment, it is a tranquil spot, steeped in history but ignored, unknown by most Londoners. It is a legal enclave constituting two-quarters (Inner and Middle Temples) of the four Inns of Court. For hundreds of years, lawyers in their chambers have beavered away here amongst the cobblestone streets, old brick buildings and secluded courtyards. The area has a Dickensian feel and can seem a million miles away from the bustle of the city. Temple’s most notable attraction has to be Temple Church which attracts dozens of visitors each day. Just outside the boundaries of the area you will find many other attractions including Somerset House, Royal Courts of Justice and a great selection of bars and restaurants. Covent Garden and South Bank are both within a 10-minute walk of Temple Underground Station offering some of the best sights in the city.
