The Bank of England Museum will have a display explaining how the famous English architect Sir John Soane designed the Bank of England.

Very little of Soane’s artwork survives from the years 1788–1833, but the original perimeter of the building is still standing.

You'll discover how Soane’s designs were inspired by his love of the ancient world, and how he completely changed the look and feel of the bank's headquarters.

Craig has written a review of the Bank of England Museum on his blog. You might also like to read his review of Sir John Soane's Museum as well - his townhouse that is absolutely filled to the bursting with ancient artefacts. It's one of the most amazing museums in London and really does have to be seen to be believed.
