Our European Headquarters
Located in the heart of the City of London, our European headquarters is the first wholly owned and designed Bloomberg building in the world. Designed to facilitate collaboration and fuel innovation, it will bring Bloomberg’s 4,000 London-based employees under one roof for the first time.
@Bloomberg’s European HQ was designed to push the boundaries of what an office building could be – setting new standards for openness & sustainability. It’s an honor to receive the @RIBA Stirling Prize & we’re grateful to all – especially @FosterPartners. #BloombergLondon pic.twitter.com/auaRXZhpvd

Bloomberg London Overview
In December 2010, Bloomberg embarked on the construction of a new building in the heart of the City of London that would meet the needs of our growing employee population and represent our company’s culture, values and ambitions, from the ground up.
Located between the Bank of England and St Paul’s Cathedral, the new site occupies 3.2 acres and will provide approximately 1.1 million square feet of sustainable office space, three new public spaces – two featuring a specially commissioned artwork – a retail area, Bloomberg Arcade that will reinstate an ancient Roman travel route, and an anticipated cultural hub that will restore the Temple of Mithras to its original site.
Conceived by our founder Mike Bloomberg in collaboration with leading architect Lord Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, the new building’s design is sympathetic to its surrounding context, an exemplar of sustainable design and uniquely of its place and time – a natural extension of the City that will endure and improve the surrounding public realm.

History & Archaeology
The Story of the Bloomberg Writing Tablets
Archaeologists from MOLA found 400+ fragments of ancient Roman writing-tablets on the site of the new Bloomberg London building. The collection is the largest and earliest of its kind in Britain and includes the first known reference to London and the earliest hand-written document in Britain. Roman waxed writing tablets were used for note taking, tallying accounts, correspondence, and legal administration.
For more information on the tablets, visit MOLA.
The London Mithraeum:
A Future for the Past
Bloomberg’s European headquarters in London will be located on one of the UK’s most significant archaeological sites – a temple dedicated to the Roman god Mithras. As stewards of the ancient site and artifacts, Bloomberg is creating an innovative museum experience that will change the way we encounter archeology.
The London Mithraeum is free, but to guarantee entry please book your visit.
