Broadgate – Culture, fitness, cocktails, dining out & live music
Broadgate is a 32-acre central London neighbourhood; a diverse community where innovation meets finance and a public arena for new food, retail and culture.
In the past 30 years, Broadgate has grown into an innovative and impressive community, where world-class dining meets excellent everyday staples, from public sculpture to the latest in sports and wellness facilities.
With Broadgate’s collection of shops, bars and restaurants that is soon set to triple in size and facilities, this is the story that is going to defined one of London’s most dynamic neighbourhoods.
Since first opening in 2015, when Broadchurch Circle was home to only 11 restaurants and a small boutique gym, it has since introduced Crossrail with links to Heathrow and beyond. In 2019, an interior transformation by Stirling Prize-winning architects AHMM, included an architecturally stunning entrance space open to the public, with exciting restaurants and the city’s first boutique cinema from Everyman. Broadgate is truly an exciting venue catering to all.
Today, Broadgate has been totally transformed into the perfect place for a spot of shopping without having to head to the likes of Oxford Circus and it has a vast array of restaurants and bars for you to relax and indulge in. It is estimated that 19 million people visit Broadchurch each year to work, shop, drink and dine, which will only increase as soon local offices invite their employees back into work, making it a real shopping and dining destination. Throughout the year, Broadgate comes alive with a year-round programme of over 100 events, which will begin once government regulations allow events to resume with a higher footfall of visitors, but for now at least COVID 19 government guidelines are strictly adhered to.
Broadgate’s very own shopping destination – 100 Liverpool Street, is made up of 90,000 square feet of new shops, brands and boutiques spread across three levels, perfect for some lunchtime therapy, after work socialising or a spot of weekend exploring. 100 Liverpool Street is the ultimate one stop destination for a food and shopping, an easy centre in which to spend several hours.
If you haven’t visited before, access is easy, 100 Liverpool Street is home to six tube lines, trains, buses and direct covered access to Crossrail and there are over 660 cycle spaces, full height lockers, showers, step free paths and dual entrances. So, wherever you want to travel to, 100 Liverpool Street’s got it covered, simple to get there and home again!
20,000 sq ft of outdoor terraces are spread across five levels, landscaped and designed to enhance to surrounding area, adding colour and life to 100 Liverpool Street. The views across to St Paul’s from the outdoor terraces are stunning and a reminder of just how diverse our capital city really is. Broadgate is also impressive ensuring that all facilities are energy efficient, water saving and waste reducing. All of the AHMM’s buildings and 100 Liverpool Street are designed and managed to the highest sustainability standards, great for people and the planet.
