  Cultural Attractions

The Temple Church is a church within the Temple built by the Knights Templar in the 12th century as their English headquarters and as a shelter for pilgrims traveling to Jerusalem. The chancel of the church was build by Henry III. The church was renovated in the 17th century by Sir Christopher Wren after it was ravaged by the Great Fire of London, and then in the 20th century by Walter Godfrey after its bombing by Germans in World War II. The church still serves the members of Gray's Inn and Lincoln's Inn and has frequent service open to the public.
