    Go in an Open Day, the interior is beautiful. The museum is just OK.

    Being closed at weekends and bank holidays does limit your visiting options. Lots of old banknotes and the chance to touch a gold bar.

    Probably the only place in the world where you can hold a bar of gold worth £300,000 in your hand (if you're strong enough). The museum is good, but the bank's actual interior is better.

    It's more interesting than you might think. And you get to lift a genuine bar of gold, worth hundreds of thousands of pounds.

    Figure out the combination to the £50 safe for a free pin from the front desk.

    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.
