  • Really liked this museum. Went here just before the new £5 note came out so was cool to hear all about it and all its differences and as someone who handles money it was good to find out all these things. The gold bar part of it was good fun as well. Really enjoyed it.
  • Great museum for kids and adults alike. Entry is free! The place explains the foundation of the Bank of England quite well and explores facets of financial information.
  • Superb fun for all ages. A but repetitive in parts, but still great. Interactive in parts too including a chance to lift a gold bar!
  • Small but Decent museum with interactive exhibits and free entry for adults and kids. You get to touch a big gold bar
  • Interesting museum, a bit off the beaten track but worth visiting especially if you have a child. An opportunity to hold a real bar of gold.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
