Two Temple Place

How to get here

The address is 2 Temple Place, Temple, London WC2R 3BD. The main frontage is close to the street, set behind low cast-iron railings. The entrance is via a courtyard on the left where visitors pass between two tall bronze lampstands decorated with cherubs.

Temple tube station is the closest and is on the Circle and District lines.  The station has only one exit.  Turn left and go up the steps (10 steps, with a rail) and you’ll be in Temple Place. There’s a crossing a few paces to your right. Cross the road and turn right, and you will find 2 Temple Place a short distance away on the left.

Several bus routes stop nearby, by the Aldwych on the Strand – numbers 6, 9, 11, 13, 15, 23, 87, 91, 139 and 176. Temple Place is a five minute walk away, down Surrey Street towards the Embankment, then turn left at the T junction with Temple Place.

There is an NCP car park in Drury Lane, or street parking at Lincoln’s Inn Fields. Both are about 15 minutes’ walk away, but it should be possible to drop passengers off in Temple Place if required.


There is a short flight of stone steps leading up to the entrance. Wheelchair access to the building can be gained via a stair climber. Visitors will need to transfer from their wheelchair into the stair climber wheelchair. Please note that the stair climber cannot be used in wet or icy weather conditions.

Once inside the building, a lift provides access to all floors, and we have an accessible toilet on the ground floor.

During our exhibitions, Large Print label books are available in each room.

Assistance animals are welcome, and we are happy to provide water on request.
