Sir John Soane - A Special Exhibition at the Bank of England Museum

This week the Bank marks the 250th anniversary of the birth, in 1753, of its renowned architect Sir John Soane with the opening of a special commemorative exhibition in the Bank's Museum.
Published on 08 July 2003

From 9 July until the end of October, visitors to the Museum in Bartholomew Lane EC2 will be able to take a virtual tour of the Bank as it was in 1814. The contribution of Sir John's architectural brilliance comes alive through this and other programmes available on two newly-installed touch screens. Supplementing the Soane material are an architectural history of the Bank from its establishment in 1694 and fascinating amateur footage of the construction in the 1930s of the present building.
