Also known as London Moorgate, this central London railway terminus was opened by the Metropolitan Railway in 1865, and serves both National Rail trains and the London Underground. The line between King's Cross and Moorgate became known as the City Widened Lines after it was widened to four tracks in 1868 - this was eventually renamed the Moorgate line after electrification in 1982. Upon the completion of Crossrail in 2017, Moorgate station will link to the western ticket hall of Crossrail's Liverpool Street.
Moorgate has a rich history dating back to Roman times, and it continues to thrive today. Situated just inside the Square Mile - London's financial centre - it boasts a high concentration of investment banks and top-notch shops, bars and restaurants supported by City workers. New residential developments such as Milton Court and The Heron Tower on Moor Lane are set to bring even more life to the area.
