Norton Folgate is a short length of street in London, connecting Bishopsgate with Shoreditch High Street, on the northern edge of the City of London.

It constitutes a short section of the A10 road, the former Roman Ermine Street. Its name is a reminder of the tiny ancient Liberty of Norton Folgate situated in and around the area.[1]

The nearest London Underground station is Liverpool Street, also a National Rail mainline railway station. The nearest London Overground station is Shoreditch High Street.

It lends its name to a character – played by Samuel Barnett – in the Big Finish Productions Torchwood audio drama Ghost Mission, written by James Goss and released in May 2016.[2]
