Aldgate is in the middle of London, steeped in history. Through the ages various Noblemen have resided there, There are varying views as to how it came to be called Aldgate. A gate was erected pre Roman times, it was rebuilt a couple of times before it was finally removed circa 1761. There was a pump there which was used to measure distances from, to places like Essex and Middlesex. The original pump is no longer there it was taken down in 1876 and replaced with a newer one.
Now modern day Aldgate is a very different place. It is now home to the Insurance industry, and has many famous buildings such as the “Gherkin”. The roads are very busy today with road traffic and pedestrians.
