  Middle Temple Hall

  Bridewell Theatre


A linear route from Blackfriars (Mainline or Underground) to Temple station (closed Sundays).
Travelcard zone 1
The Dissolution of the monasteries made buildings available for indoor playhouses but restrictions impossed meant that these usually operated as private theatres, not for the general public.

Places for refreshment are mainly along & just off the Strand and Fleet Street. There are benches in the Temple and at St Brides.

The walk between stations is 1 miles.
All pavement walking
This walk takes in a number of theatrical sites but with the closure of the Mermaid the only functioning theatre is the Bridewell, which was built as a swimming pool and laundry. [Route & what to see]
