Prince Henry's Room

This half-timbered building of 1610 incorporating the gateway to Inner Temple Lane, is one of the few houses in London which survive today from before the Great Fire of London in 1666. It has a curious history, records show that the house was erected as a tavern The Prince's Arms, later the Fountain and part of the house was once occupied by a Waxworks exhibition.

The original 17th century half-timbered front incorporating eight carved panels, was discovered behind a false front in 1900. The main feature of the building is the large oak panelled room on the first floor with one of the best remaining Jacobean plaster ceilings in London, the design incorporates the Prince of Wales feathers, and the letters PH in a star-shaped border.
