Aldgate
 (голосов: 0)
AldgateAldgate is named after the gate which once spanned the road between Dukes Place and Jewry Street. The original gate was built by the Saxons and the name is derived from Aelgate - meaning 'open to all' a free gate. It has also been interpreted as the old-gate but this is probably incorrect. Aldgate was one of the original four gates in the City Wall, rebuilt in 1609 but demolished in 1761.

The station was opened as ALDGATE on 18 November 1876.

Aldgate East - see Aldgate.

The proposed name of the original station was COMMERCIAL ROAD, but it opened as ALDGATE EAST on 6 October 1884. The station was moved a short distance east in 1938.
