Mr Monkey in London, 10th February

"The building work is sort of ghostly"

Mr Monkey went out for a meal in the evening. Afterwards, for a jape, he made his humans get off the train early so he could admire the plastic cladding and scaffolding surrounding St Paul's cathedral. Then he scampered along Cheapside and Poultry to look at the Bank of England and the Royal Exchange. The original Royal Exchange was built in 1565 as a centre of commerce for the City and stockbrokers weren't allowed in on account of their bad behaviour. The current building is the third Royal Exchange and was opened in 1845. It's a shopping centre now, and Mr Monkey suspects stockbrokers are allowed in.
