Threadneedle Street London

This is a street in the City of London, between Bishopsgate at its northeast end and Bank junction in the southwest. It is one of nine streets that converge at Bank.

The street is famous as the site of the Bank of England; the bank itself is often called ‘the Old Lady of Threadneedle Street’ and has been based at its current location since 1734. The London Stock Exchange was also situated on Threadneedle Street until 2004 when it relocated to Paternoster Square. The Baltic Exchange was founded in the Virginia and Baltick Coffee House on Threadneedle Street in 1744; it is now located on St. Mary Axe.

In addition to the Bank of England, there are shops, banks, restaurants and offices located on the street. The Merchant Taylors’ Hall, home of the Worshipful Company of Merchant Taylors, has occupied a site off Threadneedle Street since 1347. It is said that is here that the British national anthem was sung, in private, in 1607 for the first time, conducted by John Bull. The headquarters of the South Sea Company was located on the street from 1711 to the 1850s.
