Paternoster Square is an urban development, owned by the Mitsubishi Estate Co., next to St Paul’s Cathedral in the City of London, England. The area, which takes its name from Paternoster Row, centre of the London publishing trade, was devastated by aerial bombardment in The Blitz during World War II. It is now the location of the London Stock Exchange which relocated there from Threadneedle Street in 2004. It is also the location of investment banks such as Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch and Nomura Securities Co., and of fund manager Fidelity Investments.
At Paternoster Square, you can see the original Temple Bar Arch, created by Christopher Wren. It was located a few miles to the west of this square. The gate had spikes, to expose the heads of executed villains.
