The Temple of Harmony

Welcome

At the moment the only part of the greater park which can be visited by the public is the Temple of Harmony.  It is a smaller copy of  the Temple of Portunus in Rome and was completed in 1767.  It is Grade II* listed and was fully restored by the Somerset Buildings Preservation Trust in 1996.


 

Today the Temple is managed by the Halswell Park Trust and can be visited from bank holiday Monday 29 May 2017 until Sunday 10 September 2017 (Heritage Open Day) on Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays between 2 pm and 5 pm.  Please click on the links on the navigation bar at the top of every page to find out more.
