  • Good free museum to spend some time in, definitely worth a visit, even if just to hold the big bar of solid gold! Lots of good information with some interesting history, some interactive stuff for kids too.
  • Visited the museum today and learnt about the workings behind the Bank and its rich history. The staff were friendly and helpful. Recommended trip to those interested in Economics!
  • I enjoyed looking at the gold bar. The staff from BOE (a.k.a Bank of England) museum were friendly and supportive after I did the quiz sheet etc. :-)
  • 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.

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.
