You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Also see below for all the Building Societies around Your Postcode with their contact details. Just click through to go to a map, street views, reviews and a link to their own websites.

Sellafield, Seascale CA20 1PG, UK – 019467 28333

Overall nice place, I must say, me and my family had a good time. I do have a very small complaint about the area, as the smell was kinda strong. The wildlife we spoke to were friendly. A wonderful place, I recommend visting.

There is a nice walk up the West Cumbrian coastline from Seascale to Sellafield. The views of the sun setting in the late afternoon can be quite stunning here.

Hatch Legal

1 Sella Bank, Seascale CA20 1QU, UK – 019467 21715

Genuine and honest firm Hilary’s professional approach to a very complicated and difficult case is highly appreciated. Her care and understanding were evident at all stages of the case. Everything was explained in very simple terms and I was updated when and where necessary. Hilary was favourably recommended to me. Having experienced her excellent service I can now confidently recommend Hatch Legal to anyone to get through a veritable minefield!

Simply the best & better than all the rest. Great advice, great team, great service. I can't speak too highly of this organisation and their expertise. Definitely 5 stars +

Booked here for Mother's Day lunch. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and service was quick. The menu offered good choices over the 3 courses. The food was nicely presented and, most importantly, delicious. Would highly recommend it for a meal when open.

Excellent location for the event I attended. Did not stay in any rooms. Service was very good.

Attended a conference at the Kellbank. Facilities were more than adequate - plenty of room and a big screen for presenting. Are before the event in the bar - good choice on the menu and you definitely won't go hungry! My room was snug but comfortable and the l important Wi-Fi was free! OK, the outside could do with a bit of tidying up but the level of service and attentive and friendly staff couldn't be faulted.

The meals here are lovely. Generous portions and always tasty. The staff are all great too.
