Two Temple Place is a dazzling neo-Gothic gem on Victoria Embankment, built for William Waldorf Astor in the 1890s.
Astor emigrated to England from America in 1891 as the richest man in the world, and he spared no expense when work began on Two Temple Place in 1892, so the building now provides us with a vivid narrative of his life and the endeavour of the remarkable craftspeople who shaped it. Designed by one of the foremost neo-Gothic architects of the late nineteenth-century, John Loughborough Pearson, downstairs is Astor’s estate office, while upstairs is Astor’s private and peculiarly idiosyncratic apartment. Alongside the fantastical and opulent interior, Two Temple Place originally contained the largest strongroom in Europe as well as two other enormous fortified safes, the whole serving as an impregnable bolthole for the self-exiled and paranoid Astor.
