This is a lovely building on the junction of Cornhill and Threadneedle street, near to Bank Underground station. Outside, there's a nice war memorial, beyond which there are impressive massive columns by the main entrance. Inside, it is 'hollow' i.e. there's a huge rectangular atrium...More

Tucked away on the first floor ambulatory, behind the restaurant tables and bars are some wonderful paintings depicting London's history through the ages. The paintings are not particularly well lit but the detail can still be seen and is well worth the time taken to...More

We saw this building on a rainy day when we were looking for the Bank of England Museum (see separate review). As it happens, it's right across the road. The Royal Exchange Building, like so many other buildings in London, is an impressive piece of...More
