Moorgate was one of the gates of the old City of London, a name given to a road that runs through where it was, and the ward that it runs through.

The road runs north from Lothbury near the Bank of England, past London Wall, where the old gate was, then continues north. Upon leaving the City and entering the London Borough of Islington it becomes City Road.

The gate is associated with the Moorfields, which were one of the last pieces of open land near the City.
