Aldgate Connect - BID Success!

We are delighted to report that local businesses in Aldgate have voted overwhelming in favour of establishing a BID (business improvement district) for Aldgate.

‘Aldgate Connect’ will now go live in April 2020 after a resounding vote of approval. It is the first cross borough BID and will cover an area between The City of London and Tower Hamlets. Of those businesses that voted, 92% voted ‘yes’ at the ballot. The ballot result is a strong endorsement of the achievement of the Aldgate Partnership since it was first established in 2014.

The successful ballot result means that Aldgate Connect will be able to deliver a variety of strategic and operational improvements in the area covering the eastern city and fringes. Over the next 5 years around £4 million pounds will be invested in projects and programmes ranging from support for businesses and improving business resilience, to enhancing air quality, promoting the area as a destination and supporting young people.

Jonathan Beilin, Partner at Newton Perkins commented “As a board member of TAP, we are delighted with the result. We share the vision that Aldgate should no longer be seen as a gateway to more recognised areas but as an established destination in its own right. The areas historical and strategic merit is tremendous and it deserves the investment and enhancement that we have seen in the likes of Farringdon and Shoreditch in recent years.”

Art Deco in The City, alleys that we walk through

Take a tour of some of the finest Art Deco buildings in Aldgate and Spitalfields with Footprints of London and Jane's London on February 16th!

Let me take you on a tour through The Square Mile's narrow backstreets and along its main thoroughfares to show you that squidged in amongst today's glass and high rise edifices there are some marvellous 1920s and 1930s architectural gems hiding in plain view.

We'll look at a variety of imposing styles that show how the world of finance and insurance used the clean lines of this era to best advantage via Jazz Age metalwork, carved wood and stone reliefs, ziggurat and zig-zag embellishments and beautifully-tiled façades.

Discover who built these impressive structures and what went on inside. Hear about shopping and shipping, money and markets, tea and coffee, fine art and fire... even horse-racing!

The walk begins near Aldgate station - The exact meeting point for the walk will be sent to you via email after purchase of your ticket(s).

Duration: approx 2 hours, finishing near Monument station.

For last-minute bookings, enquiries or updates please call me prior to the tour start time on 07941 475003. Please note that I do not check my phone after a walk has started because it's not fair on the other attendees.
