The historic and awe-inspiring buildings of Middle Temple were revealed in all their splendour. We felt as though we were going back in time as we walked down cobbled lanes flanked with gas street lamps towards one of the finest Elizabethan Halls in the country.

The guided tour took us into the Hall with its magnificent double-hammer beam roof completed in 1573. Generations of royalty have dined at the 29ft oak High Table – reputedly a gift from Elizabeth I herself. Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Francis Drake also dined in Hall. It is said that the first-recorded performance of Twelfth Night took place in Hall in 1602.

We met at 11 am for tea, coffee and biscuits. The tour started at 11.30 am

OPTIONAL LUNCH: 3 course lunch in Middle Temple Hall after the tour.  (35pp - drinks purchased at the bar).
