Slavery & the Bank
This exhibition explores the history of transatlantic slavery through its connections with the Bank of England and the wider City of London.
For over 300 years, the slave trade tore more than 12 million African people from their homes and families. In this exhibition, we reflect on how the wealth created through transatlantic slavery shaped the development of Britain.
Open now: The exhibition is open Monday to Friday 10am – 5pm, with late openings until 8pm every third Thursday of the month. The exhibition will now remain open until February 2024.
Entry is free, and no need to book ahead.
