Latest reviews | Events in Moorgate | 10 Places to Stay

In ancient times, Moorgate was one of the gateways leading through the London Wall. Although the gate was demolished centuries ago, Moorgate today refers to a street and to the area surrounding it (once known as Moorfields). A financial district in the City of London, Moorgate is filled with investment and banking institutions, and architecture ranging from the very old to the brand spanking new. Moorhouse, a spectacular office development, opened in 2005, and more tall buildings are planned. Contrastingly, the magnificent Guildhall dates back to the early 1400s. Its Great Hall, formerly the scene of some sensational historic trials, now hosts banquets and meetings for state and civic dignitaries. Below it are the biggest medieval crypts in London. Especially exciting is the Roman amphitheatre discovered in 1989 beneath Guildhall Yard. Its surviving parts are incorporated into the new Art Gallery, which opened in 1999 adjoining Guildhall. Elsewhere, the Grade II-listed garden at Finsbury Circus is, interestingly, oval-shaped. Poet John Keats was born locally, and England's first hydrogen balloon flight took off from these parts. Still, Moorgate is best known for 1975's fatal crash at the tube station, leading to the introduction of a safety system called Moorgate control.
