The Bank area of the City of London is the central location of London’s financial district. Nine roads converge at this major intersection, around which many of the City’s most prestigious addresses and several famous landmarks are located, like The Bank of England and The Royal Exchange. Recent developments on Threadneedle Street, the site of the old London Stock Exchange, and along Poultry and Cannon Street, have added a number of striking modern developments that blend in with the historic period buildings and famous churches.

The area is also home to many ancient institutions. In addition to The Corporation of London there are a number of Worshipful Companies, many dating back over 800 years, where tradition still presides in some of the remaining livery halls. They were originally established to support and promote professions like grocer’s, glass makers and candle makers. The area around Poultry and Cheapside was home to London’s oldest market, with side streets named after the produce that was sold there, like Bread Street, Milk Street and Poultry itself.
