  • Visitor Information

The Belgians have adopted one of London's most historic and austere buildings as their hospitality headquarters during the Olympic Games - the Medieval Inns of Court, Inner Temple. The site dates back to the middle of the 12th Century, when the Inner Temple was occupied by law practitioners and students. Despite being partly destroyed by The Great Fire of London in 1666 and suffering war damage in the 20th Century, it has been preserved splendidly and remains one of the great British law institutions to this day. In recent years it was used for the filming of The Da Vinci Code, and has now been picked as Belgium House during the Games this summer. More than 11,000 Belgian NOC guests are expected at Inner Temple (despite members' concerns that it will disrupt the final Trinity term) over a 17-day period; even the Belgian Royal Family will be making an appearance. Visitors will get the chance to meet athletes fresh from the podium and enjoy the historic surroundings, particularly the pristine three-acre Inner Temple gardens. The Belgians have also booked the neighboring Apex Temple Court Hotel.
