Two Temple Place is a magnificent neo-gothic mansion on the Embankment built by the first Viscount Astor, William Waldorf Astor in the 1890s. The house is owned by and houses The Bulldog Trust. It is a focal point for many of the Trust’s initiatives and hosts regular activities including the Engaging Experience Philanthropy Network, a partnership with the Fulbright Commission to develop philanthropy among its alumni, and marquee events for small charities that would otherwise not have the opportunity to access a similar setting. The house is also available for private hire, with all revenue earned supporting the work of the Trust.
In addition, Two Temple Place is open to the public for winter exhibitions between January and April each year. These aim to raise awareness of the wonderful collections held by museums and galleries outside London and enable institutions around the UK to showcase what makes them special. In collaboration with the Courtauld Institute of Art, programming also provides an opportunity for emerging curators to be guided through a solo show.
The third exhibition Discoveries: Art, Science & Exploration from the University of Cambridge Museums will run from 31st January – 27th April 2014.
