Temple Church - Review
The Temple Church is a very beautiful Church in London. The church was made famous by the movie “The Da Vinci Code”, and houses majestic effigy tombs of the medieval knights. They are the church’s most popular pull for visitors. The church is constructed stunningly in a circle with pretty archways on the inside. It is said that the church was constructed by these “Knights Templar”.
A tour around this place is sure to transport anyone into another era altogether. The famous church organs are also interesting things to see. The Church is also associated with music like many others in London and many religious music concerts can be attended here.

Temple Church, London Reviews
Set in the midst of the city of London, calm quiet place away from the bustle of the city. Few minutes walk from the temple/ blackfriars tube station. It's not open on weekends, and subject to timings as per their website. The sunday mass and other timings can also be found here, best to check before visiting. 5 pound entry fee for adults, and 3 pounds if you are a student. The insides have effigies of kings and knights on display, with stained glass windows telling stories of their own. All in all a historic place to visit. Not really a tourist hot spot, but worth the visit if interested in the history. There's also a cafe operated by the church for lunch and serves decent coffee.
Great church, HUGE history background. Well worth it to enter and understand more about it. Unfortunately, there was no service in August on sundays, so I will need to return later on to see the choir.
Wow what an amazing place. Fantastic to visit though quite awkward to find. A small charge for entry but well worth the money. Small spiral staircase leads up to a viewing area. A wonderful display and explanation of the church and its history. Also has full size effigies on display which are quite wonderful.
Temple Church is built by the famed Knights Templar. It has a rich local history and today serves as is an active Anglican church. Temple Church was designed after the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem and consecrated in 1185AD. Related, the Knights Templar were a society of soldier-monks who were tasked with protecting pilgrims in route to the Holy Land during the Crusades of the Middles Ages. You can visit the Temple Church (£4 per person) but they have inconsistent opening hours so best to refer to the Temple website to confirm opening times before you attempt to visit. Inside you can see the famous 13th century effigies resting on the floor in the nave. The rest of the church is nice to see, displaying its Victorian Gothic features and other earlier period structures. We particularly enjoyed seeing the medieval figures and faces which line the round walls of the nave near the effigies. These days the Temple Church is also known for having one of the finest choirs in England with evening performances that might be worth attending. Other attractions in the area include the Temple Bar, the Gothic style RCJ building complex, St. Clement Danes Church and other historic pubs and tea houses, like the original Twinning Tea Shop.
Well worth the time to go see this church. I specifically hunted down this old church. Huge history. Associated with the Knights Templar history.
