two temple place

worth going to have a look at just for the extravagant interior – two temple place was originally built by William Waldorf Astor in the late 1800’s as his office – as Astor was incredibly rich there was no expense in building the architectural gem.   its only open when they have exhibitions, but it is a lovely place to visit, right on the river, with stunning stain glass and wooden panels

there is a new exhibition on at present Unbound – textiles and costume give us a beautiful and intensely human insight into our history. Unbound: Visionary Women Collecting Textiles celebrates seven pioneering women who saw beyond the purely functional, to reveal the extraordinary artistic, social and cultural importance of textiles.

its free entry and there is a little cafe there selling cakes and sandwiches.
