Garrick's Temple to Shakespeare

 
Garrick's Temple to Shakespeare hotels title=Octagonal 18th century temple located in idyllic grounds.

This extraordinary octagonal temple was commissioned by celebrated actor, dramatist and theatre manager, David Garrick (1717-1779) as a tribute to his hero, William Shakespeare. Built in 1756, the temple was fashioned out of stone and framed by a domed roof, a porch and four pillars. Reached by a grotto tunnel, Garrick used the folly for entertaining and dining. It originally housed a life-size statue, created by sculptor Roubiliac, of the celebrated playwright sitting at his desk. Restoration work on the building produced a replica of the statue which now resides inside the temple. The 18th century pleasure garden has been similarly reinstated, decorated by a serpentine path favoured by landscape designers of the day. Perched on the river’s edge, this is an idyllic spot to visit.

Best for:
18th century history and theatre, Shakespeare in London, rural riverside retreat.

Also known as:
Garrick's Temple

Did you know?
Roubiliac’s statue of Shakespeare now stands in the King’s Library at the British Museum.
