The Bank of England Museum

Housed within the impressive walls of the Bank of England, this fascinating museum takes you through the history of the bank since its foundation in 1694 to its role today as the nation's central bank.

There are gold bars dating from ancient times to the modern market bar, coins and a unique collection of banknotes. There are also many items you might not expect to find, such as the pikes and muskets used to defend the bank; the Roman pottery and mosaics uncovered when it was rebuilt in 1930; and documents relating to famous customers such as Horatio Nelson, George Washington and the Duchess of Marlborough.
