Nottingham Building Society's St Albans branch
Just 20 miles north-west of London, it’s an area steeped in history. It was the first market town (now a city) on the Roman road Watling Street, and was previously known as the Roman city of Verulamium. The mixed contrast of past and present in St Albans has made it a popular filming location, with scenes from TV programmes Inspector Morse and Foyle’s War as well as parts of films Johnny English and Birthday Girl recorded in the city.
Our St Albans branch has a high street location, on St Peters Street, across from the market place and close to a pharmacy, card shop, book store, restaurants, museum and gallery. The team of customer services experts are happy to help, whether that’s with information about a new ISA, assisting in finding the right mortgage through our mortgage broker service, provided by Nottingham Mortgage Services, explaining our estate agency offering to help you buy or sell a home or discussing a funeral plan.
Services available at our branch include
Bite-sized fact: St Albans was home to Samuel Ryder, the founder of the Ryder Cup. He ran a successful packet seeds business in the 1890s.

St Albans is located near: Barnet, Cheshunt, Harpenden, Hatfield, Hemel Hempstead, Hertford, Knebworth, London, Luton, Potters Bar, Stevenage, Watford and Welwyn Garden City.

Helping Herts Young Homeless
Building society colleagues in St Albans and Harpenden have been helping raise money for a project helping local young homeless people.
They met representatives from Herts Young Homeless to pledge their continued support for the charity and discuss fundraising and volunteering opportunities. St Albans branch manager Vickie Hobbs presented a cheque for £100 to the charity’s Alison Wildey.
Alison said: “We'd like to thank The Nottingham. We rely heavily on the support of the community so its fundraising efforts are hugely appreciated and very welcome.”
