As part of the City of London, Aldgate is steeped in history. This was the location of the ancient eastern gateway through London Wall, leading travellers from the City to Whitechapel and the East End. In the late 14th Century, poet Geoffrey Chaucer - a customs controller - lived in rooms above the gate. He would've been able to look down and see mobs storming into the City in the 1381 Peasants' Revolt. The gate, since demolished, is commemorated by a roadside plaque just before Aldgate (the road) joins Fenchurch Street. Little remains of the London walls. In 1666, the Great Fire of London tore through the City, ravaging all of the timber-framed buildings except for one: the flames stopped 50 yards short of a house now famous as the Hoop & Grapes pub. Other relics from the past include the Aldgate Pump, dating back to the 1870s, and an old police call box outside St Botolph's Church. Not far away, Mitre Square is the scene of Jack The Ripper's gruesome 1888 attack on Catherine Eddowes, his only murder inside the City. Today, more happily, Aldgate is a gateway to attractions such as Petticoat Lane, Brick Lane and Old Spitalfields markets.
