Bank of England Architecture Walking Tour

11 June 2024

12:00 -13:15

Explore 300 years of the Bank of England’s architectural history from its beginning in 1694 to its current building in Threadneedle Street to see how it was reimagined and rebuilt throughout the years.

The free tour will take you outside the Bank’s first premises in Mercer’s Hall in Cheapside and Grocer’s Hall in Princes Street. Then marvel at the classical façade of the Bank’s current building which has changed many times over the years from 1734 to 1939.

Continue the tour inside the Bank of England Museum where you can see the reconstruction of the old Stock Office – a late 1700’s banking hall designed by Soane. Learn how the classical style masks the security features which protect the Bank.

After the tour, feel free to wander inside the museum to find out more about the history of the Bank.
