The Huguenot Legacy

Bank of England Museum, Bank Wednesday April 3 2013 10:00 - 17:00
The achievements and legacy of the Huguenots, the French protestant refugees who came to Britain during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, are celebrated in this exhibition, which takes a look at Huguenot contributions to British culture –including banking. Figures explored include the first Governor of the Bank of England, Sir John Houblon, who was the grandson of the Huguenot refugee. Nearby Spitalfields is the ideal place to continue an exploration of Huguenot London.
