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!

Banks

TSB Bank

9 King St, Hammersmith, London W6 9HR, UK – 020 8748 6009

Branches of TSB are very few and far between yet they offer the most comprehensive awards for current accounts and linked savings. Here is one in your doorstep. If you've read it watched the ads give a real person a go from the off.Theres a naive welcome charm about the rotation of the window logos. I like good old fashioned humour.

Came inside 16:00 on saturday and still received help that i need. Good work, friendly, starting the conversation all the time :)

HSBC UK

Kings Mall, 21 King St, Hammersmith, London W6 0QF, UK – 0345 740 4404

Branch is full of helpful staff. I had a RV booked in the same week, and it took the diligent clerk 35mn to open my new bank account - while I had been literally begging over and over again at terrible HSBC Fulham Broadway branch for over 2 months. Problem solved = happy and relieved customer!

My wife and I moved to London from Australia and every other bank rejected us from opening a bank account because we didn’t have an utility bill as proof of address even though we had our tenancy agreement from a reputable real estate agent that showed our address. Santander came close but they wouldn’t allow us to open a joint account. It was a nice surprise and a relief when HSBC let us open a bank account AND a joint one without any issues. We were served by Adesope and his level of customer service was the best we’ve received in our 2 weeks in the UK so far!

NatWest Bank

2050, Ariel Way, Shepherd's Bush, London W12 7GE, UK – 0345 788 8444

Boutique version of a normal branch. Curved wall to the right accommodated cash withdrawal and deposit terminals. Straight forward to ask Receptionist who is available for an on the spot appointment. The desks and seats beyond the reception area are discreet and comfortable. Can get busy at the weekends. Opening hours are generous.

This branch is good but not for everything the one advantage it offers is to make payments into your account up to 10pm while the branch is closed the pay in machine is still operational. I tried to order a new cards from here while the branch was open but they don't offer a full service. I was waiting in a long cue which took around 25 mins only to leave within 1 min of being there. But I must say the staff there are great.

Building Societies

The Chelsea Building Co

168 Earls Ct Rd, Kensington, London SW5 9QQ, UK – 020 7259 2247

Have used this company several times and can highly recommend. David and his team were a delight to have around! Mess was kept to a minimum, turned up on time and didn’t land me with extra hidden costs. They even didn’t seem to mind too much when I changed my mind numerous times on things and were very accommodating. Would definitely use them again.

I used Chelsea Building because they were competitive and professional pitching for the business and I was not disapointed.They completed painting the outside of the house and remedial building work on time and to a very high specification.Their workfroce were a pleasure to have on site and they always left the site clean.I would definitely ask them to pitch again for any further building and/or decorating work that I have going forward

Nationwide

146 Uxbridge Rd, Shepherd's Bush, London W12 8AT, UK – 0800 554 0296

I've moved from this branch. Although conveniently located on the north side of Shepherds Bush Green it has an annoying double entry door that doesn't always work very efficiently and it is easy to collide with people even though you're not supposed to be able to. Watch out if you're struggling with a wet umbrella. Why do these places hardly ever have a bucket to deposit them in. Can get super busy in here with a queue that never seems to move. You can also wait a long time to speak to an advisor.

Great customer service. Very friendly staff. Barely any queuing

Nationwide

304-306 Chiswick High Rd, Chiswick, London W4 1NP, UK – 0800 554 0294

I visited Nationwide on Chiswick High Road today in order to set up internet banking and Sharon very kindly went through the procedure and set everything up for me. An absolutely outstanding service from Sharon, she was extremely polite and highly professional and I now have internet banking. First Class Service!! 10 out of 10.

I was given 5* service today by the branch manager Alistair. He went above and beyond to assist me, and gave outstanding customer service. It makes a pleasant change to be made to feel welcome by my local branch and I am far more likely to use more of the bank's products and services because of this experience.
