2 Temple Place CANCELLED
Due to current Government advice this trip has been cancelled
Two Temple Place is one of London’s architectural gems, an extraordinary late Victorian mansion built by William Waldorf Astor on the Embankment.
The building was originally designed for use as Astor’s estate office by one of the foremost neo-Gothic architects of the late nineteenth-century, John Loughborough Pearson. Astor had emigrated to England in 1891 as, arguably, the richest man in the world and no expense was spared when work began on Two Temple Place in 1892. In addition to the extraordinary, opulent interior, when it was finished in 1895, Two Temple Place contained the largest strong room in Europe as well as two other enormous fortified safes.”
In addition to our 45-minute tour focusing on the history of Two Temple Place and its architecture, you will also have the opportunity to visit the current exhibition ‘Unbound – Visionary Women Collecting Texiles’.
