From ticket gates to Bishopsgate, London has its fair share of gates. Some of the most elaborate skirt around the edges of parks and Royal palaces, and make for great photos. Perhaps the most famous gate in the history of London is the Traitor's Gate at the Tower of London. Here we display gates of palaces, parks, factories and more.
