Skipton Building Society

Established in 1853, Skipton is the UK's fourth largest building society.

Skipton is a mutual, meaning that its members (account holders) own it, rather than private investors.

As well as its traditional savings and loan business, the Skipton Group also offers insurance and owns the Connells estate agency chain.

Skipton Building Society offers savings accounts, mortgages and home insurance provided by Legal & General. It does not offer a current account.

Their headquarters are in Skipton, North Yorkshire.
