Temple Church

One of three Norman "round churches" left in England, this one was first completed in the 12th century; not surprisingly, it has been restored. Look for the knightly effigies and the Norman door, and take note of the circle of grotesque portrait heads, including a goat in a mortarboard.

The Temple Church, consecrated in 1185, is one of the oldest churches in London and is located between the City of London and the City of Westminster.

Positioned on the famous Fleet Street and on the bank of the River Thames, the Church has become the place of worship for the communities of the surrounding two societies of barristers, the Inner and Middle Temples, the legal hierarchy of England. It is officially the place of worship for all judges, including the Lord Chancellor and the Master of the Rolls.

A building rich in history, the Church has also established a musical tradition which has encompassed some of the most innovative and formidable musicians in church music.
