Aldgate station was opened on 18.11’1876. It is in the City of London. It is a terminus of Metropolitan Line. This station looks bit unloved and neglected but if TfL put some effort this station could look much better and have a great character.
It is one of the older stations on the network and these are interesting facts I found:
- Station was built on the site of a plague pit which contains many ~1,000 bodies.
- Metropolitan line does not have a direct interchange with District Line but you can see District line trains that are going toward Aldgate East from Aldgate station.
I guess this place must look much better in the past as these days it is full of concrete and glass.Things worth to see are:
- 3 churches: St. Botolph’s, and St Andrew Undershaft and St Katharine Cree
- and is the oldest synagogue in the United Kingdom.
- Aldgate tube station

No. Area is quite boring. This is a place full of concrete and glass without any interesting architecture
