If you ever have the opportunity to visit the Lloyds building, either during the open house weekend, or accompanied by a Lloyds passholder, take it!
Off limits to the general public, this is the home of insurance. In some ways it is like stepping back in time when you approach the entrance, from the door staff in their red jackets and top hats, to the strict dress code for the trading insurance community inside.
Stepping into the underwriting room, there are rows upon rows of underwriting boxes, the centre of the room dominated by the Lutine Bell. Around the centre of the underwriting you can see the original loss book, Nelson's order and the Nelson connection.
Take the elevator up to the 11th floor to visit the Adam Room, purchased by Lloyds in the 1950's and installed a short time after.
And don't forget to take the views of the City in on your way up/down in the elevators.
