We only visited the square to see the statue and also the restaurant where the UK television show First Dates is filmed. Had it not been for the show, I never would have visited it.

Paternoster Square is a lovely place to spend some time. Very well kept and clean. The square has a few interesting statues, many eateries and there are a few shops in the nearby streets/lanes. A great place to chilli out and grab some food.

Time was when Paternoster Place destroyed in the Blitz but resurrected as a brutalist concrete jungle in the decades following was a byword for execrable modernist urban design. However the space has been resurrected as part of a plan to restore the medieval street lines by architects employed by its Japanese owners in 1995. Surrounded by smart bars and restaurants it has become a veritable sculpture park containing a work by Elisabeth Frink showing a herd of sheep being shepherded to market; a tall column with a golden orb of fire at its top commemorating the destruction of this area by fire in 1666 and 1940; the restoration of Wren’s Temple Bar gateway from a park in Hertfordshire to its current position shielding Paternoster Square from St. Paul’s churchyard.
