Bank Chambers is a conversion of the upper floors of a Grade II listed building that was one of the oldest bank buildings outside London. Built in 1881 of red brick construction as a statement of prosperity, instead of the more commonly used stone of the Georgian era, the building sits prominently above its surroundings in the centre of the market town of Knaresborough in North Yorkshire.
The apartments have been created with sympathetic consideration to some of the original features, including a magnificent hardwood staircase that winds upwards to the second and third floor apartments.
Bank Chambers provides one and two bedroom accommodation for visitors to this idyllic corner of the Yorkshire Dales.
