Office space in Moorgate, London
Moorgate has a long history as an important area of the City of London. It was originally part of the Roman wall and became a gateway into the City in the 1500’s. It is an important thoroughfare which links London Bridge and the centre of the financial district to the boroughs of Hackney and Islington to the north east.
The area is between Liverpool Street to the east and the Barbican to the west. A major central landmark is the Citypoint tower on Ropemaker Street. Originally named Britannic House, the building was first constructed in 1967 and was the first building in the City to exceed the height of St Paul’s Cathedral. It was redesigned and fully refurbished in 2000 and had several new floors added.
A short walk away is the listed Barbican Estate, a significant residential area built in the early 1970’s. It is dominated by three tall towers and is home to the Barbican, the largest Arts Centre in Europe.
A walk around the Moorgate area will highlight its significant historical importance. It’s close to the remains of the original Roman wall, parts of which can be seen along London Wall, close to the Museum of London. The Corporation of London has its home at The Guildhall on Gresham Street which is also home to an art gallery.
