Reviews of The Temple Enclosure in London
The Temple Enclosure venue information
Situated in the middle of Wanstead Park, The Temple was designed in the 18th century as a feature for the formal gardens of Wanstead Park, complete with a classic portico.
These days, The Temple serves as a visitor centre where you can discover the story of Wanstead House and the park that surrounded it. Its enclosure also hosts regular events and an annual open air theatre!
The Temple tells the story of Wanstead Park from the Roman era right up to the present.
Discover the fascinating history of the 'lost' Roman villa by examining sections of painted wall plaster and pieces of mosaic, explore the story of the Regency romance gone wrong that led to the downfall and destruction of the estate and examine the catalogue from the 1822 auction that spelled the end for Wanstead House.
Displays also include the battered remains of statues that were once the glory of the gardens and a large variety of hats from different periods of Wanstead’s history for the whole family to try on. From Roman helmets to Victorian bonnets, our hats will transport you through time!
As a forest centre, The Temple also provides information on Wanstead Park and Epping Forest to help you make the most of your visit.
