Free Bank Of England Tour

Free Bank Of England Tour

Free Tours of the Bank of England and its museum are open to the public today, 3 of July 2010. This is a fairly rare opportunity to see inside a building that has an amazing amount of history to it. There will be a 60 minute guided tour of parts of the bank, where you will get the opportunity to learn many interesting facts about what makes the Bank of England tick.

After you have enjoyed the guided tour, you will can lean about banknotes from the Note Division Staff, who will be giving away free money…that was a joke! And it gets better you will have the opportunity to have a go at lifting a genuine gold bar. I wonder how many I can stuff down my jeans? A few of those I will be made for a few years – they are currently worth £300,000 each…wow.

The Bank of England tour is something that sounds like its going to be real fun, and if you enjoy immersing yourself in the history of London…you cant afford not to miss this free tour. Its not like it is available on a regular basis.

Right I’m out of here, I have got some gold bars and free money to collect from the Bank of England, if  you don’t here from me in the near future – do come and visit me in jail..!
