Wonderful Georgian houses, modern boutique-style flats, converted warehouses and City landmarks, such as the Gherkin overlook the streets of Aldgate.
Aldgate gives its name to a ward of the City. Once called Ale-gate, the ward has a colourful history of being built, destroyed, and rebuilt from its start in the 12th century. Now Aldgate is dominated by the Gherkin, the building of insurance company AXA and the London Metal Exchange.
With the DLR link to Canary Wharf, Aldgate is described as a gateway to London’s new financial district, and as a result it is perfect for City professionals seeking to rent or buy. Due to the area’s popularity, there has been a high volume of residential development in Aldgate over the last decade.
Aldgate is falls into the London Borough of Tower Hamlets that is loosely bounded by White Kennet Street to the north and Crutched Friar to the south.
Originally, Aldgate was the easternmost gateway through the London Wall, leading from the City to Whitechapel and the East End. Aldgate has swift and easy access to the City, Docklands, Brick Lane and East London. The nearest tube stations are Aldgate and Aldgate East, and buses run frequently, night and day, to the City and further west.
The main streets and buildings include Aldgate High Street, Leadenhall Street, Fenchurch Street, Prescott Street, Alie Street, The Minories, Back Church Lane, Houndsditch, the Gherkin, Lloyds Register, the AXA building, London Metal Exchange, St Botolph’s Aldgate, St Katherine Cree, St Andrew Undershaft, Sir John Cass’s school.
