The Inner and Middle Temple gates (excluding the gate into Middle Temple at Temple Place, which remains closed due to building works) have reopened. This will assist access and egress for the anticipated increase in residents, professional tenants and staff of both Inns who are gradually returning to the estate over the coming weeks.
The four Inns’ Libraries, including our Library at 10 Fetter Lane, are open on a rota basis with a booking system in operation. Our physical events have been cancelled until the end of the year and we will continue to monitor the situation in line with government guidance.
We recognise this is an anxious time, particularly for those with training requirements and the Inn will endeavour to provide high equality equivalent learning online until the end of 2020. We continue to be in communicate with the Bar Standards Board to ensure everyone can access training to ensure they can fully their obligations. Please also refer to the BSB website for updates, as well as specific advice for Pupils, Pupillage Providers and Practitioners. Several training events have been arranged online. For more information please see our Events page.
The Inner Temple Garden will reopen to the general public on weekdays from 14 September, with the usual opening hours of 12.30pm to 3pm. Fob holders may access the Garden as usual.
Whilst the pandemic crisis remains unpredictable, access control procedures will be reviewed to ensure the safety of residents, tenants, staff and contractors within both Inns.
