ROYAL EXCHANGE

The Royal Exchange is a landmark building in the City of London. The exchange was originally a centre for trading stocks, established in 1566 by the father of English banking, Sir Thomas Gresham. It received royal approval – and title – when Queen Elizabeth I opened it in 1571. Gresham’s Royal Exchange was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666. Another opened in 1669, but that too succumbed to fire, in 1838. The present Royal Exchange building was opened in 1844 by Queen Victoria, but now operates as a luxury shopping and dining venue.
