Banks & Building Societies

Bank of Ireland (UK) Plc

Bow Bells House, 1 Bread St, London EC4M 9BE, UK – 020 7236 2000

Always been a fabulous bank even though I've had no branch for 3 years, being in England. They own the Post Office so it can offer most branch services, and the 365 online is fabulous, though adding payees or changing your phone number is a bit draconian.

Bank of England

Threadneedle St, London EC2R 8AH, UK – 020 7601 4444

I went to exchange some old twenty pound bills that went out of circulation and spent some time at the museum. It was time well spent. I enjoyed learning about the history of the bank, its architects, and was intrigued about how busy and crowded it was in the bank on the dividend day. A display of all the Bank of England notes was among my favorites, and of course who would refuse touching the real gold!

Good place to go if you're looking to see some UFOs, reptilian humanoids, and the like.

Westpac Banking Corporation

Camomile Court, 23 Camomile St, London EC3A 7LL, UK – 020 7621 7000

Fantastic service! Staff were incredibly well informed, helpful and efficient. Having wasting considerable time trying to open an online account with another Australian bank, it was an absolute joy to find one that would do everything face to face. Thank you Westpac!

Excellent. Efficient and fast..
