The Inner Temple opens its doors after extensive redevelopment15 June 2022
Our prestigious London event venue The Inner Temple has reopened its doors following an extensive refurbishment and redevelopment. Located in the heart of London’s legal district between the City and West End. The ambitious project has seen the venue add two additional floors, reopening with a brand-new lecture theatre on the newly built third floor, along with eight new spacious meeting rooms and a breakout area on the fourth floor. Able to seat up to 120 delegates, the lecture theatre is equipped with built-in AV to stream the content online, including into the meeting rooms
Sustainability is a key focus across the venue, with the refurbishment seeing new environmental measures such as thermal insulation, renewable air source, sustainable timber used throughout and harvested rainwater, along with improved provisions for cyclists.
Blending the new with history, The Inner Temple also boasts a selection of traditional event spaces: the 250-capacity neo-Georgian Hall with chandeliers and oak-panelled walls adorned with historic paintings; the wood-panelled Parliament Chamber with a grand piano and space for up to 200 guests.
The venue is also home to an award-winning three-acre garden offering a serene oasis to escape the hustle and bustle of the City, suitable for summer parties for up to 300 guests during the months of May and June, until they install their impressive marquee, expanding the versatility of the space and increasing the capacity to 600 guest.
