The Bank of England’s Virtual Tour is an app that lets you explore the famous Threadneedle Street building in the heart of the City of London. Discover the architecture, history and current role of the UK’s central Bank through a series of stunning 360° panoramic images. Visit ten locations including a gold vault, committee rooms, a hidden garden and the Bank's museum. You can also check your banknotes using the ‘Know Your Banknotes’ feature located in the cash vault.
Thank you for allowing the Average Joe to see behind the scenes at the Bank of England. It's easy to use and the imagery is stunning. Kudos for allowing people to "Know your Banknotes." I work in a shop and people do not believe me when I say a note is no longer legal tender i.e. Michael Faraday £20 notes so this is useful, knowing the BoE will change them at face value.
Fascinating insight into the mysterious world of the UK's central bank. An amazing opulent building symbolising Great Britain's former imperialistic past. I wonder what it would look like it was built again today in the current landscape of cut backs and austerity.
Bank of England app
Excellent app, you see on this app EXACTLY what you see if you go up to the Bank of England on one of the open day, but now you can have time to have a good look round!
Hope that it will have options to buy some games as you do on a. Proper tour to the bank!
