The historic building, which was designed by Charles Hardwick in 1865 for Harvey and Hudson Bank, has a storied past.

When the bank closed in 1870 it was taken over by the Post Office who stayed until 1969. More recently its ground floor office space was home to Savills estate agents, who relocated to St Andrews Street after vacating Hardwick House last year.
