22: The Bank of England in the City of London

Bank of EnglandAs the bus reaches the crossroads at Mansion House, look to the left into the heart of the banking district. The Bank of England — 'The Old Lady of Threadneedle Street' — is just visible at the next junction. The building is similar to an iceberg in the way that what's visible on the surface is tiny in comparison to what lies beneath. There is more space below ground than is contained in the grey Tower-42 office block which looms in the distance. The bank has a small museum open on weekdays with free admission.
