Tells the story of the Bank of England, from its origins in 1694, as a national bank to fund the war with France, to the present. 'Kenneth Grahame and the Bank of England' is a permanent display commemorating the non-literary career of ‘The Wind of Willows’ author, who worked at the Bank of England for 30 years. A new display case marks the ten-pound note's 250th anniversary in 2009. A small display, opened in April 2009, in the 250th year since Handel's death, illuminates the composer's financial dealings with the bank.
