Local Insight & Information

Right in the heart of The City, Aldgate is within the square mile and is a very important and popular destination for offices within London. The architecture of the area is simply stunning with high rise buildings as well as extremely unique designs flooding the whole locality. Choosing an office in this location would surround your company with very influential names in the world of finance. However, despite its heavy focus on modern day business and the rapid pace of life which exists in the area, there are still plenty of sites filled with culture and leisure to be discovered in Aldgate.

ALDGATE

One very special and unique place situated in the area, taking you back in time in a real big way, is that of Proud Cabaret. Exactly as suggested in the name this lively and flamboyant establishment is a buzzing and exciting place to spend an evening. Live entertainment comes in the form of not only cabaret but jazz, burlesque and live DJs whilst you dine on the best of British foods such as classic fish and chips as well as some tasty Dover sole. Even the staff who serve you your hearty meal are dressed in the full costume typical of the era; even the cocktails maintain the theme with choices such as Ginger Rogers and Lady Luck on the menu. If something a little more low key better suits your tastes then the Missouri Angel, a converted Victorian pub offers a trendy dining experience with North American flavour. This individual space spans across two floors with décor including a very glitzy bar to match the stunning array of cocktails which are available from it. The food served varies greatly from refined comfort food such as flaky fishcakes with buttered spinach, to hearty meals such as ground beef sandwiches with fries.

Key Transport Links

Aldgate is an area which sees a lot of international visitors as well as plenty of guests from outside of the city who come to meet with business associates and potential clients. Therefore the need for top quality hotels and transport in the area is very high. Grange City Hotel is a five star establishment with views which span across the city and provide stunning images of the Tower of London and the iconic Tower Bridge. Located in this historic part of The City the hotel incorporates the last remaining section of London’s Roman Wall; originally patrolled by Roman sentries. Transport supplies the area extremely well also with Aldgate Tube Station being only two minutes from the High Street and Tower Gateway DLR station is only a five minute walk away. Aldgate East and Tower Hill tubes are equally as far as the DLR and Liverpool Street Station is only eight minutes away providing wide links throughout the city and beyond. The Circle Hammersmith & City, District, Central and Metropolitan lines can all be directly accessed from Aldgate.

However, it is not all work and no play within this City location with the EC3 venue offering live music from blues, rock, jazz, folk as well as singer/songwriters performing each day of the week; they specialise in showcasing up and coming talent and the best in retro music. If you fancy a bite to eat or a beverage whilst you enjoy the music the venue offers food, with stone baked pizza as the speciality, as well as real ale and an impressive range of cocktails from the bar.

Architecture within Aldgate, whilst as equally as impressive as the current day skyscrapers, is not all unique modern structures. Buildings such as St.Olave’s Church have survived near misses throughout their lifetime, such as the destruction caused by the Great Fire of London, and lived to be admired to this day. The church is the burial place of the iconic London figure Samuel Pepys and provides a rare example of the great mediaeval structures of pre 1666. The church has a timeless atmosphere within and it is a pleasure to be able to experience the mood within an ancient parish church in the middle of such a modern city location.

Aldgate Developments and History

Major work is currently underway to give the area of Aldgate a new and even more modern facelift. Plans commenced in their consultation stage in the summer of 2013 and the renovation is set to be completed in April 2017. The project aims to provide new pedestrian crossing points, allow easier navigation of bus services and introduce two new public spaces to the busy locality. The need for more greenery, better lighting as well as a public space for events and leisure activities was raised as something which was greatly desirable in the area and are desires which are shortly to be met.

Being one of the seven historic London City Gates through the London defensive wall this area was very significant during Roman times. However, differently from each of the other city entrances ‘Ale-gate, literally meaning free to all, had no fee at the gates. This spirit, as demonstrated by the plans for the new leisure site within the area has been carried through to the modern day. Despite the busy business pace which the area holds, the locality is bright and vibrant with a brilliant atmosphere from day to night.
