For the first time in its 300-plus-year history, the Bank of England has thrown open the doors of its gold vaults to the public – via a new virtual tour.
The central bank launched an app on Thursday which enables users to explore what really goes on behind its windowless walls on Threadneedle Street, London.
The tour includes the Bank of England's gold vault – one of the largest in the world, which houses over 400,000 bars, weighing 13kg, or two stone, each.
There are also annotated 360-degree images of the cash vaults, dealing room and even the first floor committee room, where the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meets each month to set interest rates.
But despite the sensitive nature of some of the locations featured, a Bank of England spokesperson said it had "no security concerns" following the launch of the app.
