Branch Location

Saffron Building Society's Colchester branch is located on Culver Street West, in the heart of the town, moments away from Culver Square and Lion Walk with a great variety of mainstream shops and boutique stores.

It would be great to see you at the branch whether you are existing customers or new faces. Come in for a tea or coffee over a Savings Review so you can experience our first class service. Lisa and the Colchester team look forward to welcoming you soon.

About Colchester

Colchester was, for a time, the capital of Roman Britain. It is the oldest recorded Roman town in Britain and is often claimed to be the oldest town.

Colchester sits on the River Colne and is home to Colchester Castle, an 11th-century Norman keep built on top of the vaults of a Roman temple. In 1189, Colchester was granted its first royal charter by King Richard I. As the centre of the woollen cloth industry, Colchester developed rapidly during the later 14th century. Today, it is one of Britain’s fastest growing towns.
