"The Baltic Exchange" City of London - The Square Mile Tip by easyoar
City of London - The Square Mile, London: 105 reviews and 215 photos
The Baltic Exchange is mostly famous today because in 1992 the IRA exploded a large bomb just outside it and blew away a large part of it killing several people.
A large part of the site has been redeveloped and the Gherkin has been there (see another tip for this). However some of the original Baltic Exchange has been restored to its original state.
The Baltic Exchange was originally built by the Georgians as a shipping exchange and was one of the most important financial buildings in the City of London. Due to its financial importance and also that it dealt with shipping, it is pretty natural to find it just across the road from the famous shipping insurers Lloyds (who have a famous landmark building too - see another tip).
Address: next door to 30 St. Mary's Axe
Directions: Bank or Mansion House Underground stations.
