Bishopsgate is a historic ward that makes up part of the City of London. It gets its name from one of the original eight gates in the London Wall. The area is in the heart of the financial district, although there are several Afternoon Tea venues to choose from. Why not enjoy a nice, hot cuppa with cake on your next trip here?

The namesake gate of this area, although since demolished, was called “Porta Episcopi” in the Domesday Book. It was anglicised as Bishopsgate by the 12th century.
Sadly, nothing is left of its original medieval street except for the core fabric of the surviving churches. However, since the 1960s, it has become one of the city’s busiest commercial hubs.
In 1993, a massive IRA truck bomb devastated much of Bishopsgate. Nevertheless, the famous London spirit prevailed, with the area once again thriving.
Today, an Afternoon Tea in Bishopsgate is a popular pastime. Expect a friendly face and professional service in whichever establishment you eventually decide upon.
