Two Temple Place
Monday 26 March 2018

This morning we have a guided tour of the magnificent neo-Gothic mansion built for William Waldorf Astor.  The mansion, situated on Victoria Embankment, was designed by John Loughborough Pearson and completed in 1895 and, as befitted one of the richest men in the world at that time, no expense was spared -  and it housed the largest strong room in Europe!  It was also one of the first houses in London to have a telephone.  Today, Two Temple Place is owned and run by the Bulldog Trust and dedicated to promoting culture and philanthropy, hosting events and exhibitions throughout the year.

Two Temple Place reopens to the public in January with its 7th annual Winter Exhibition Rhythm & Reaction: The Age of Jazz in Britain.  The exhibition is proudly sponsored by The Arts Society and can be explored at leisure after our tour (it is also the subject of our lecture in April).

Cost - £10.00 per person.

Our 11am tour sold out at our January lecture but we are pleased to advise that a second tour has been arranged for midday on the same day.    In the first instance, please request your place by email to and then follow the instructions on the booking form which can be downloaded here.
