Stories from the City: The Bank of England in literature

This new exhibition at the Bank of England Museum explores the Bank’s literary connections and celebrates the launch of the new Jane Austen £10 note.

Visitors will be able to find out more about the new £10 note, and learn about its high-tech security features. The exhibition will also take a look at the life of Jane Austen, and in particular the theme of money that runs throughout her work. This includes the ‘single men in possession of a good fortune’ in Pride and Prejudice, and the political and economic circumstances of the war which made fortunes for characters like Captain Wentworth in Persuasion.
