London's legal district has great photo opportunities; architectural details, ornamental wrought iron fences, and Elizabethan buildings and lamps aplenty. On this photography tour, your guide will lead you to all the right places, and tell you what the best camera settings are for each location. From Embankment Gardens to the historic Staple Inn, you'll visit old churches, majestic arches, cosy courtyards, and many more photographic gems to take home and treasure. It's a great route for putting a themed project together. Make sure your camera's battery is charged, be inspired and snap away!
Temple Church London, Temple Bar Memorial, Royal Courts of Justice, Staple Inn
Start at the exit of Temple tube station. It's on the Circle and District lines between Embankment and Blackfriars, and is in fare zone 1.
Places to stop along the way:
There are lots of great pubs along the route!
Best time of day:
Check opening times of Middle Temple Hall, Temple Church and Lincoln's Inn, so you can visit inside the buildings or eat at Middle Temple Hall. I recommend a wide-angle lens and a lens in the 18 - 105mm range. There's no need to take a tripod. Carry only what you need.
You are on private property in many of these locations, so if you are requested not to take photographs, please respect that.
