More than I expected it to be. Informative boards throughout the small church and beautiful stained glass. You can take as many photographs as you like too. Pleasantly surprised by this place and only £5 entry.

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's

Look at the Transport for London (TfL) Web site and you'll find the relevant buses. Or open up Google Maps and you can see the bus stops near the Temple on Fleet Street and The Embankment.
