Basinghall Avenue in the City of London was named after the Basings, a 13th century London family who lived locally. It is home to The Girdler's Company and Hall, one of the City Livery Companies.
Basinghall Avenue is surrounded by many attractions that define the London EC2 district. London Wall EC2 only moments away marks London’s Roman past and is now a wide bustling street full of offices, shops and restaurants. Just east of Basinghall Avenue is Moorgate EC2.
Hosting an underground and train station; part of London Metropolitan University; the modern building ‘Moorhouse’; and many shops and restaurants including Wagamamas and Pret a Manger, Moorgate is a central street in the City. North of Basinghall Avenue lies the vast Barbican Estate: London’s famous post-war housing estate and community raised above the ground, and the Barbican Centre for Arts and Conferences: a unique cultural centre featuring film, art and music.
