Temple Opening for Summer Season 2019


The Temple will be open to the public on Sunday afternoons and bank holidays from 2 pm to 5 pm  from  27 May 2018 to 16 Sep 2018. Entrance fee is £2 per adults and pensioners and is free for children under 16.  


Well behaved dogs are welcome.  Access to Mill Wood and the remainder of the Great Park and House is not included or allowed unless permission has been obtained from the owner.  Guided tours of the House and Gardens can be booked.  Details can be found on Here.


The Temple is situated on the narrow lane that connects the village of Enmore and the village of Goathurst.  It is about half a mile outside Goathurst.  Do not attempt to access the Temple via the main-gated drive to Halswell House as this is a private residence that is not open to the public.


These villages are close to North Petherton and Bridgwater in the county of Somerset.  There are no buses and the only access is by very narrow, bendy lanes that are unsuitable for large vehicles. There is little or no parking in Goathurst, but there are two spaces in the lay-by at the Temple’s entrance.
