About the Area

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 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 City Point tower on Ropemaker Street. 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 Art Centre.
