Supporting architectural education and nurturing careers.

Temple Bar Trust

Temple Bar is the gateway between Westminster and the City of London, designed by Sir Christopher Wren in 1672. It has a fascinating history, having been situated in three locations. The chamber room above the arch is where drinks receptions are held and the atmospheric room is available for hire.


Temple Bar Trust collaborates with schools, educational organisations and colleges to encourage and foster interest in the built environment, providing opportunities for a diverse audience of pupils and students.
