Temple is on the District (green line) and Circle (yellow line). When you exit you are right on the Embankment so the River is right in front of you. It is called Temple because it serves the Inns of Court, the Inner Temple and Middle Temple.
Because its leading up to Remembrance Sunday there were two young uniformed servicemen standing with collection buckets in the entrance, selling poppies.
This area is really interesting - I visited it in the summer on a Hidden Pubs of Olde London Town tour. I will go back there (to another station) and photograph it all then.
My destination on this occasion was The Old Bank Of England pub for our company Annual Quiz Night! No details of this evening will be recorded here - suffice to say we were doing fine until the Monopoly round ... At least we weren't served meat pies, from the pie shop next door to Sweeney Todds (a fictional character whose barber shop was just along the road) although they do claim to serve good meat pies there! This building genuinely is the old Bank of England and after the Quiz we were shown the old vaults under the pub - but once you've seen one vault you've seen them all.
