Slide left and right over the images to compare the Exchequer from the 1400’s and the building as it exists today.

This project was commissioned to illustrate the architectural and functional evolution of the building over its 600 year life span and it is planned for opening to the public with guided tours.

The tour begins with an 8 minute illustrated introductory movie followed by a guided tour, explaining and describing the spaces with help from interactive, panoramic ‘step back in time’ scenes, displayed on a hand held tablet.
