Cumberland Building Society

Cumberland Building Society is one of just a few UK building societies to provide its own current account.

Cumberland Building Society fares very well in our bank account table due to great customer polling scores.

The society was founded in 1850, and is based in Carlisle in North West England. It operates a number of branches in Cumbria, and its reach stretches as far south as Preston and Blackburn.

You can also become a customer if you live in certain parts of Lancashire, Northumberland or anywhere in the Dumfries and Galloway region of Scotland.

You can't sign up to become a customer if you live too far away. It's probably best to give them a call if you're unsure.
