This is a little gem highly recommended by my local London friend. I am so glad I came. If you still have time after National Gallery, Tate Britain and Tate Modern, swing by this house, 1.5 hours will be sufficient. The “Astor House” is a...More

It is worth going to any exhibition here to enjoy the architecture and splendour of this building. Secret doors, wonderful carved reliefs, the stained glass windows of the great hall, the beautiful staircase. The fanciest door to the ladies ever! Wonderful place. And the people...More

Two Temple Place is an interesting small free gallery by Temple tube station on the Embankment. The Jazz exhibition was well displayed and enjoyable. The building itself is quite stunning. Last admission is 4pm during the week.
