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:

  • Building society
  • Estate agency
  • Mortgage advice
  • Financial planning
  • Estate planning
  • Insurance

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. His interest in golf and sponsorship led to his donation of the now famous Ryder Cup. He is buried in Hatfield Road Cemetery, where in 2012 the Olympic Torch Relay passed by to honour him.

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

Our services


Our mortgages are great. But depending on your circumstances there may not be one that’s just right for you. So when you come to Nottingham Mortgage Services for a mortgage, we’ll search over 60 lenders to find a deal that is.


ISAs, fixed rates and easy access accounts, or savings ideas to get your little ones started. We have a range of savings accounts to suit everyone. We're also one of only three building societies to offer a Lifetime ISA - our award winning account is a great savings account available to those between 18 - 39 years of age saving for their first home or retirement.

With well over 25 years of experience, our local knowledge and dedicated advisers can make buying, selling and letting homes easier than ever.


Through our partnership with RSA, we provide home insurance. Their Take Your Pick insurance frees you to build a policy that covers the things you love, while only paying for what you need.

Families are everything so it’s important that they’re taken care of when you’re no longer around. We offer help with inheritance tax and life insurance provided by Wren Sterling as well as funeral plans provided by Dignity.

Having a sound financial plan in place is a great help in reaching your goals and aims! Wren Sterling can help you through any financial puzzles, providing financial advice to help you achieve what you want with your money.

St Albans branch in the news

Bake-off raises over £140 for local homelessness charity

Our St Albans team baked up a great idea to raise over £140 for Herts Young Homeless.

Colleagues made tasty cakes and buns and sold them to members of the public in their latest kind-hearted efforts for the local charity.

Cluster manager Jeremy Atkinson said: “Homelessness charities tend to have a lot of focus in the colder months of the year, however bringing awareness and vital funds to enable the good work to continue all year round is essential.”

St Albans branch manager Vickie Hobbs added: “It’s a pleasure to be working with such a great charity and helping give young people a better start in life. This was our second event for Herts Young Homeless and we are planning further fundraising activities.”

Earlier this year the branch gave Herts Young Homeless, who focus on the needs of 16 to 24 year-olds in Hertfordshire providing help, mediation and education so that they are less likely to experience homelessness, a cheque for £100 to assist them in their work.


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.”
