History of Threadneedles Hotel: 

Threadneedles Hotel was formerly head offices of the London, City and Midland Bank headquarters from the 1880s.  The original building, designed by W & A Moseley was built in 1856 and was transformed into Threadneedles Hotel in 2002, and sensitively adapted into a striking lobby, bar and restaurant on the ground floor and a hotel with 74 bedroomsThe 130,000 sq. ft. listed building is just minutes from the Bank of England and the Royal Exchangeit is the City’s oldest surviving premises for a joint-stock bank.

History of the Bank: The Birmingham & Midland Bank took over the London-based Central Bank in 1891, renaming itself the London & Midland Bank, and then acquired the City Bank in 1898. It was then renamed the London, City & Midland Bank, a title which lasted until 1918.

The former Threadneedle St head office of The City Bank, which became London, City & Midland Bank from the 1880s, expanded its customer base by opening new branches and acquiring other banks. In 1891 it acquired the Central Bank of London (which gave Midland a seat in the London Clearing House) and, in 1898, it bought the City Bank (which provided a London head office).
