Aldgate is one of the oldest wards in the City of London, named for the Eastern gate belonging to the London Wall that had fortified the city during Medieval times. It is one of the best areas to see ancient buildings like the 13th century St. Helens Church, the 16th century St. Andrew Undershaft Church, and the 17th century St. Botolph's and St. Catherine Cree Churches and Bevis Marks Synagogue, which is the oldest synagogue in the United Kingdom. One of the most modern iconic structures in Aldgate is 30 St. Mary Axe, a breathtaking bullet-shaped skyscraper whose windows resemble a jewelled mosaic.
- Browse the exquisite modern and contemporary art collections and rotating exhibits at the Whitechapel Gallery, which displays works by iconic artists like Pablo Picasso, Frida Khalo, and Jackson Pollock.
- Explore the remnants of the ancient London Wall, a rampart that had fortified the original city when it was under Roman control in 200 AD.
- Enjoy the macabre history of Aldgate with a Jack the Ripper tour, which follows the trail taken by the infamous serial killer who stalked the streets of London in 1888.
Heathrow Airport is twenty kilometres from Aldgate using the M4 and A4 motorways. The Piccadilly and Circle tube lines, and bus numbers 4, 15 and 285 all serve this route, and there are taxis and limousines available as well. Since this ward is situated in the City of London district, public transportation is plentiful, but the area is also pedestrian and bicycle-friendly. Aldgate is served by the Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan, and Circle lines of the London Underground, and the nearest rail stations are on Liverpool and Fenchurch Streets. There are numerous bus routes that serve the ward as well.
