Branch Location

Saffron Building Society's Royston branch is on the corner of Market Hill and Market Link which is between the Corn Exchange and Royston Library. There are a few free parking spots on the roads nearby to the branch, however there are plenty of pay and display spaces within a 2 minute walk which are all reasonably priced.

We have a lovely small market which takes place opposite the branch on a Wednesday and Saturday, so good days to visit if you are looking to do a number of things in the town at the same time! We are just a short walk away from the main street of shops on the High Street, where you will find the likes of WHSmith with the Post Office at the back, Boots, Costa and Morrisons as well as a great variety of local businesses to suit all ages.

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 personal service first hand. The Royston team look forward to welcoming you soon.

About Royston

The town of Royston is situated in North Hertfordshire.

Royston grew up at the crossroads of two ancient thoroughfares, created by Roman soldiers to facilitate their access to the hinterland of Britain. A cross, referred to as Roisia’s Cross, was erected at the crossroads. This gave the settlement its earliest name of Crux Roesia. By the 14th century, it became known as Roisia’s Town, then Roiston and finally Royston. In 1742 a strange cave, carved out of the chalk, was discovered in the centre of Royston, there is much speculation as to the origin of the cave and the meanings of the carvings on its walls.

Royston has a regular and well-frequented market. The town council’s motto: A bonis as meliora, means from good things to better.
