I am sorry to learn that the Temple Church has introduced an admission charge.
The fee is £3.
The only good news is that the admission remains free to those under 22 years of age and senior citizens.
The Temple now joins St Bartholomew the Great which was the first London church to introduce a charge.
I advise visitors to try going to a service where you can choose how much to put in the collection. This summer the Temple has a series of interesting choral evensongs. The music will be wonderful.
One evensong is on the eve of the anniversary of Magna Carta which was witnessed by the Master of the Temple.
