Bank of England MuseumSorry, no free samples here but you can get your hands on a real gold bar. Housed within the Bank of England, the Bank of England Museum traces the history of the bank from its foundation by Royal Charter in 1694 to its role today as the nation's central bank. The collections include everything from ancient gold bars to the modern market bar, coins, and a unique collection of banknotes. Visitors can learn all about bank note design and production, and live information on stocks, securities and foreign currency is given at the Dealing Desk. There are also many items you might not expect to find - pikes and muskets used to defend the bank, Roman pottery and mosaics uncovered when it was rebuilt in 1930, and documents relating to famous customers such as Horatio Nelson, George Washington and the Duchess of Marlborough. The entrance to the Museum is in Bartholomew Lane which is off Threadneedle Street.
