Try to lift the gold bar and hunt for the £1,000 note! Interior architecture here is amazing..
Maybe the only place in the world where you can hold a bar of gold worth £300,000 (if you're strong enough). The museum is good, but the bank's actual interior is better. http://bit.ly/1pA0hUE
It's more interesting than you might think. And you get to lift a genuine bar of gold, worth hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Go in an Open Day, the interior is beautiful. The museum is just OK.
Figure out the combination to the £50 safe for a free pin from the front desk.
Can be seen in 30-60 mins
Really interesting and FREE: no free samples ;)
Being closed at weekends and bank holidays does limit your visiting options. Lots of old banknotes and the chance to touch a gold bar.
Not worth going unless you want to see old currency. Sadly deficient on the policy work the Bank does and what they do have is hopelessly slanted.
Did u know the author of The Windows in the Willows was a Secretary of The Bank of England?
