Inner Temple and Middle Temple, London Location map
  View of the entrance to Inner Temple, London, England   Inner Temple.

This entrance to Inner Temple is from Fleet Street opposite Chancery Lane and was built as a new gateway in 1610 then was, apparently, rebuilt or renovated in 1748.

The principal chamber above the archway, not accessible by the public, has contemporary panelling and the plaster ceiling is decorated with the Prince of Wales' feathers. It was reputed to have been the council chamber of Henry, Prince of Wales (1612), and of Prince Charles (later King Charles I).

Passing through the archway on the right gives access to a lane which leads down to the Temple Church.

The historic buildings and cobbled streets of Middle and Inner Temples, which give an unique atmosphere, are much used as film locations.
