Temple Bar is a 350 year old gateway to the City of London, designed by Sir Christopher Wren. It formerly stood in Fleet Street, and was the last surviving gateway to the City of London.

Designed in 1672 by Sir Christopher Wren as a gateway to the City, where the reigning monarch was received by the Lord Mayor of the City, who offered up his sword as a sign of fealty. During the 18th century, heads of traitors were mounted on pikes and displayed on the roof. The gate was removed in 1878 owing to the increase in traffic in Fleet Street. It was bought by the brewer Henry Meux in 1880 for his country estate in Hertfordshire. In 2004 it was returned to the City, restored and resplendent, located next to St. Paul's, providing a gateway to Paternoster Square. It is also a metaphorical gateway to understanding the architecture of the City of London.
