Building Tour: Two Temple Place & America

Two Temple Place is a dazzling neo-Gothic architectural gem, commissioned by and built for William Waldorf Astor, who emigrated to England from America in 1891 as arguably, the richest man in the world.

In this exclusive tour for the London Festival of Architecture, discover more about Astor’s relationship with America – as the beneficiary of his great grandfather’s immigration there in the 1780s, to the ruthless growth of the family’s stratospheric wealth, and how this vivid narrative is reflected in the craftsmanship and stories told around the building.

This event is a part of a series of talks on this day – see the ‘What’s On’ page of our website for more details.

Limited spaces available.

The tour will last approx. 1 hr including time for any questions.
