Bishopsgate Institute

Bishopsgate Institute is a cultural institute situated in the City of London and is unique in offering an extensive library, world class archive collections, courses for adults, a wide range of cultural events and the hire of its historic spaces all under one roof. Our mission is to provide inclusive, high quality learning opportunities for a wide range of audiences to explore and enjoy.

Each year we welcome over 82,000 visitors through the doors of our Grade II* listed building to enjoy our courses, library and cultural events. However, we also know that the Institute’s historic spaces do not always suit the needs of the 21st century. Over the next five years, a £7. 1 million capital building project will transform the much-loved Institute into a fully refurbished and vibrant cultural centre. These vital and necessary improvements will celebrate both the diversity of activities available here and the fascinating heritage of the building. Having secured over £5. 4 million, we now need help to raise the remaining £1. 7million.
