Old Jewry lies between Gresham Street at its north end and Poultry at the southern point.

Old Jewry is a street in the centre of the Bank area and the wider London City district.

The street is famous for being set aside for Jews in the 12th century and before and a synagogue was situated at the North West part of the street. In 1262 the street was raided and 500 Jewish people were killed. This persecution was one of the many suffered by Jews in London.

Jewish people returned to Old Jewry in the 17th century.

Old Jewry lies in the heart of the City and now houses a combination of offices, bars and restaurants, surrounded by many of the City of London’s attractions.

The Browns restaurant and bars chain have a restaurant at 8 Old Jewry which was formerly the Commonwealth Bank of Australia.

Browns restaurant serves pre-theatre and a la carte options and provides a wide range of modern European dishes.

Other places to drink and eat include the Three Crowns Pub at 3-5 Old Jewry.

The street is home to many companies, in particular financial institutions, and Montague Evans Surveyors and Valuers, Allied Irish Bank (AIB) and Standard Life Assurance all have offices on Old Jewry.

A nearby attraction is St. Olave’s Jewry, Old Jewry which is a church which is located in St Olaves Court. St Olave’s Court is a narrow winding lane which starts in the middle of Old Jewry. The lane is a typical example of the winding lanes in the Cheapside area of the City.

The main streets just off Old Jewry are Poultry and Cheapside. Both streets are steeped in London history: Poultry is named after the poulterers who lived there and Cheapside was the key marketplace in Medieval London. Poultry and Cheapside now host banks, businesses, eateries and shops.

Old Jewry is moments away from Bank Underground Station. Bank tube station is officially located on King William Street EC4 and the station can be easily accessed from opposite streets: Lombard Street EC3; Cornhill EC3; Threadneedle Street; Princes Street; and Poultry. The Central line; Northern line and Docklands Light Rail (DLR) run through Bank.

Bank tube station is interlinked with Monument tube station and the connecting passages lie underneath Kind William Street.

Monument is a District and Circle line stop. Bank is named after the nearby Bank of England and is a highly appropriate name given the nearby Stock Exchange. The name Monument comes from the Monument commemorating the Great Fire of London.
