Making the most of our unique home

Hire the venue

In 2004 Temple Bar – the ancient western gateway to the City of London – was returned to the Square Mile as part of the redevelopment of Paternoster Square by Mitsubishi Estates.

Since the end of the 19th century it had languished at Theobalds Park in Hertfordshire having been removed from its original Fleet Street location. The return to the City was arranged by Temple Bar Trust, whose first Chairman Sir Hugh Wontner (Lord Mayor of London 1973-74) suggested that this jewel of a building might become the home of the Worshipful Company of Chartered Architects.

The rooms are available to hire for meetings and dinners. Both rooms are fully accessible to all users. An education programme is running that introduces students, visitors and the City community to the area’s architectural heritage and modern architecture.

Our historic home Temple Bar,

designed by Sir Christopher Wren,

supports our charitable aims and is

available to hire.
