Exhibitions / Events Category: Exhibitions and Free to See

  • Sir John Soane (1753–1837) was the British architect who designed the Bank of England’s headquarters on Threadneedle Street between 1788 and 1833.

    Inspired by the ancient world, his structure was both practical and impressive. Although very little of Soane’s original work survives today, the perimeters of our site remain.

    Our display uses records from the Bank of England Archive to give you an insight into Soane’s work. Architectural plans, correspondence and photographs show how Soane remodelled and expanded the building to accommodate its changing role.
