Located on Bridge Street, the building housed a Lloyds Bank from 1930 - 2013, and then a TSB regional bank until BrOOK'S took over the premises. Although we decided keep and revamp the Vault, a new office has replaced the old bank manager's room, and obviously the cash dispensing machine had to go too!
Our amazing architects and building team breathed a new life into the old bank premises, creating a versatile space that can accommodate groups of up to 50. It features spacious sharing tables and quiet spaces to explore, including the former bank vault - now filled with comfy seating for up to 10 people.

In a segment on the increase of independent book stores opening on UK high streets, Sky News featured BrOOK'S on their breakfast show in January 2019. We are very proud to be part of the growth of independent book shops after a 20 year decline.
