About Middle Temple

As one of the finest Elizabethan Halls in England, Middle Temple provides a truly majestic setting for your wedding. While located in the heart of London, the historic venue benefits from glorious secluded surroundings.

Built in the mid-16th century, Middle Temple is one of the Ancient Inns of Court. Very little has changed over the years, and the stately red-brick buildings and gas-lit cobbled streets create a sense of stepping back in time to the days of Sir Walter Raleigh, William Shakespeare and Queen Elizabeth I - just a few of the famous historic figures who often visited here. 

The stunning Elizabethan Hall provides a dramatic setting for any event. The intricately carved double hammer beam roof and beautiful stained-glass windows are original features from when the Hall was first built - as is the long oak table that was a gift from Queen Elizabeth I, and is still in use today! 

This impressive space can seat up to 100 people for a wedding ceremony, or seat up to 260 for a wedding breakfast. Specialist lighting and decorations can create a wedding with the delicate magic of a Shakespearian fairytale, or a stately elegance fit for royalty.

There are 4 further spaces that can be booked for weddings - each with it's own individual atmosphere. The rooms are all filled with ancient artefacts, from suits of armour to rare oil paintings, giving guests a fascinating glimpse into the past of this historically unique building. The oak paneling on the walls and the large windows overlooking the gardens give the rooms a warm and welcoming feel, whether for a champagne reception or an intimate dinner party. 

The gardens around Middle Temple extend down to the banks of the Thames, and are filled with flower gardens and shady trees creating an oasis of tranquility, even though the busy central London streets are just minutes away. From the shady Fountain Court, to the expanse of the manicured lawns, it is a beautiful setting for an outdoor reception - with plenty of space for a marquee. Outdoor receptions can host up to 700 guests, making this the perfect location for a wedding extravaganza! Contact the dedicated events team for availability and tours.

    Splendid Occasion

    Dear Peter
    This is just a short note to thank you, on behalf of my family, for all the assistance you were kind enough to render in both the dress rehearsal and the preparation for my daughter Felicity’s wedding last Friday and Saturday.
    It proved to be a splendid occasion and our guests, particular the Americans, were overwhelmed by the magnificence of Middle Temple Hall. I am truly grateful for the substantial contribution made by you and all the staff which ensured everything worked so smoothly.
    I look forward to thanking you in person when I next see you.

    Special Venue

    Please thank Peter and the team for their efforts on Saturday - they were wonderful and our guests were really impressed with how good - and nice - they all were.
    Thanks also to you for helping us organise our civil partnership - Middle Temple is a special venue but it's the people that make it 'zing'.
    Best wishes
    Graham & George
