Welcome to the latest episode of Londonist Out Loud, a podcast about London.
This week, N Quentin Woolf is at the Bank of England Museum, where he hears why the bank was first established in 1694, where it was situated until it found its home on Threadneedle Street and who gave the building its distinctive look. He also hears about the development of paper currency in the UK, and gets his hands on a gold bar.
Londonist Out Loud is presented and produced by N Quentin Woolf.
