What is a Safe Deposit Box?

Safe Deposit Box tour video

A safe deposit box is a secure place where you’re able to keep belongings that can’t be replaced or that hold sentimental value.

At our New Oxford Street branch, we have three safe deposit box sizes to choose from, each with one annual fee.

Decide what you want to protect in our secure vault – people typically store things like jewellery, gold, family heirlooms and documents. Restrictions apply*. 

How can I access my Safe Deposit Box?

Access your valuables as many times as you like during our extended opening hours. Just pop in when it suits you – no appointment, no hassle.

Only available at our New Oxford Street, London branch.

Is my Safe Deposit Box secure?

We’ve got a modern approach to a traditional service. Our boxes are secured using the latest fingerprint technology. What’s more, your box is robotically delivered to a private viewing room, meaning you’ll never need to venture into the vault. 

Every box is protected by four levels of security as standard:

  • Key card
  • Pin
  • Fingerprint
  • Key

Once you’re all set up, it’s a simple to use self-service system. Our colleagues will be on hand if you need any help along the way.
