Despite its central location between Covent Garden and the City of London, Two Temple Place does not pop up on many visitors' radars. Few people seem to know about this place, but a visit to see the grand and rather quirky interior is well worth the trip.
Originally owned by William Waldorf Astor, the house includes many of the items he collected, but they're not what you might expect from a Victorian home. You’ll find statues and artwork depicting characters from The Three Musketeers, Rip Van Winkle, several Shakespearean plays, Robin Hood, the legends of King Arthur and a lot more. This is definitely a hidden gem ready for exploring.
The house is only open to the public during an annual exhibition and on specific other dates, so it’s important to check before visiting.
