The old 'Soane' Bank of England

Discover Sir John Soane's architectural masterpiece, the Bank of England's Threadneedle Street building.
The Bank of England has been at its current home on Threadneedle Street in the City of London since 1734. Arguably, its most renowned building is that which was designed by architect Sir John Soane during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century.
