Almost all of the property in Bishopsgate is for commercial or retail use. Tens of thousands of people commute to this tiny area of the City for work everyday, but there is a resident population of just a few hundred. The office space Bishopsgate has available is in plentiful supply, with styles and sizes suitable for any business.
Located in the northeast corner of the City, the office space Bishopsgate offers benefits from proximity to the London’s financial district, coupled with excellent transport links to the rest of the UK.
The primary train station for Bishopsgate is Liverpool Street with national railway lines to the Anglia region, and platforms for the Circle, Central, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines.
Cannon Street and Moorgate stations are just a short walk away, and Waterloo station is within easy reach thanks to the Waterloo & City line which runs from Bank.
Like the rest of the City, this area is steeped in history. It takes its name from one of seven original gates in the London Wall. A bishop’s mitre made of stone is mounted on top of a building at the junction between Bishopsgate and Wormwood Street, to mark the location of the gate. Today many of the buildings are purpose built offices or retail spaces, but some historic buildings remain, such as the Grade I listed Threadneedle House, and the 300 year old Westminster Bank.
The newly constructed Heron Tower sits amongst Portland stone facades, and boasts the most luxurious office space Bishopsgate has to offer.
