thumb BI-Institute-Logo-lo-ResBishopsgate Institute is a Grade II* listed building in the City of London, just two minutes walk from Liverpool Street station and Spitalfields market. The Institute has been providing a meeting place for people with shared interests in learning and culture since 1895.

We continue to do this in the present day through our flourishing Cultural Events programme, Courses for Adults programme, and world renowned historic library. The library is open to everyone and is free to visit. Visitors are welcome to explore our unique and fascinating historical collections about London and the early labour, free thought and cooperative movements. For anyone with an interest in the local area many of our collections look at Spitalfields and the surrounding area.

As well as events, courses and the library we also provide an inspired space for venue hire.
