‘Two Temple Place is home to the Bulldog Trust, a charity founded in 1983. We host annual exhibitions, showcasing publicly-owned museum and art gallery collections from outside of London.

Our spectacular neo-Gothic mansion is one of London's most prestigious settings for corporate and private entertaining. We provide an unrivalled venue, combining the grandeur of a state occasion with the intimacy of a private house party.’

When One Key Is Not Enough

Given its size and stature, the neo-Gothic mansion known as Two Temple Place and located close to the Victoria Embankment needs specialist safety and security measures in place. As it consists of a lower ground floor and two upper floors and constructed from Portland stone and in the traditional early Elizabethan style, a library, Great Hall and various rooms dotted around the building, there is one thing more than anything else that this property needs, however, and that is keys.

Given how historically important the building is and that it is often used to display world-class, culturally significant and, crucially, expensive artwork and other exhibitions, keeping the Two Temple Place locked up when it is not in use is vital. Would you really like to oversee checking that all the doors are locked at the end of the day and that all the keys are returned to their proper place?

Looking after the small number of keys for the different locks you have in your home doesn’t really sound that bad now, does it? Problems with keys happen to all property owners and renters. Yes, even if you own a huge mansion like Two Temple Place. The best way to ensure your keys don’t go walkabouts is to have a regular place where you keep them, but when you do lose your keys or need new replacements and locks made, wherever you are in the country, www.quicklocks.co.uk can help you. They offer Bristol city locksmiths, Sheffield city locksmiths and Liverpool city locksmiths.
