Wales' Temple of Peace & Health
Wales’ Temple of Peace and Health was not only the Welsh nation’s memorial to the fallen of World War 1, but a catalyst for efforts to advance peace, health and international relations for future generations. The founders envisioned a building ‘for the people’, architecturally steeped in symbolism and award-winning art deco style, that would inspire movements of Welsh men and women to rid the world of the twin scourges of disease and war. Since its opening in 1938, the Temple has been at the heart of Welsh efforts to build a better world: from the NHS to the United Nations, bodies have been born here and global campaigns catalysed. Explore this iconic space, and discover many hidden histories from Wales’ rich ‘Peace Heritage’ , by joining this guided tour with WCIA’s heritage team.
Following some lunchtime Temple Tours, WCIA also offer afternoon research and volunteering drop-in sessions in the Temple Archives (click to book).
