Bank of England - Past & Present Presentation

  • Mon, July 29, 2019
  • 11:00 AM
  • Bank of England Museum, Bartholomew Lane, EC2R 8AH

ONLY A FEW PLACES LEFT

Join us at the iconic Bank of England, sometimes known as the “Old Lady” of Threadneedle Street founded by Royal Charter in 1694.  Our visit commences with a presentation giving a brief history since its foundation and describing its main role and functions today as a regulator of interest rates and issuer of bank notes. 


After the presentation we can visit the museum which includes historical items and glittering displays of gold, including Roman and modern gold bars, alongside pikes and muskets once used to defend the bank.


The presentation will last one hour, with an opportunity to ask questions, and time can be spent afterwards in the museum.  This visit is free of charge but must be booked with Lois German by email on lois.german@marylebone.org or on 0207 487 2706.
