Facts

  • The building is Grade I Listed.
  • The foundation stone was laid by Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria.
  • The original Royal Exchange was established by Sir Thomas Gresham in 1565 and was modelled on Antwerp's Stock Exchange. It was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666. A replacement was completed in 1669 which once again was destroyed by fire in 1838.
  • The Royal Exchange was refurbished in 1991 by Fitzroy Robinson & Partners who added additional floors. In 2001, further remodelling was undertaken (again, by Fitzroy Robinson) to incorporate luxury shopping boutiques into what is now an upmarket, mid-nineteenth century shopping mall.
