Royal Bank of Scotland

Some may be inclined to believe that The Royal Bank of Scotland, a large retail banking company, only operates in the permanently kilt-wearing land mass north of the UK, although this impression, about both the kilts and the bank, would be untrue, because alongside NatWest and Ulster Bank, the Royal Bank of Scotland has over 700 branches, covering the UK from John O' Groats to Land's End and beyond; although the bank shouldn't be confused with the Bank of Scotland, which also operates throughout the UK, but as a different company.

 

The Royal Bank of Scotland began life in Scotland’s capital, Edinburgh, in 1707 as the Society of the Subscribed Equivalent Debt, initiated by the Company of Scotland in an effort to protect their assets when the company failed. The Equivalent Society became the ‘Equivalent Company’ and gradually moved into banking. It was known as the 'New Bank' as the government favoured its Hanoverian and Whig sympathies, as opposed to the 'Old Bank’, or the Bank of Scotland, who supported the Jacobites and helped them to raise funds for their revolution, which meant the government regarded them with some suspicion. 

 

The bank was the first in the world to offer an overdraft facility, when it was introduced in 1728, much to the chagrin of those who have checked their balance to find it lacking. One might think that the Royal Bank of Scotland and Bank of Scotland would see themselves as brothers in arms during their takeover of the UK, but the banks feuded bitterly until a truce in 1729. The Bank of Scotland have the rare allowance to print their own bank notes, but this almost led to their destruction when the Royal Bank of Scotland tried to destabilize them by buying up huge amounts of their bank notes. The different types of notes are still in circulation today, but the banks have agreed to accept each other's notes since 1751.

 

The Bank only moved into England in 1874, during the expansion of the British Empire, but due to tension between Scotland and England, the company couldn't open branches outside of London until 1961, when the brand rapidly expanded; although it should be noted that England were also forbidden from opening bank branches in Scotland. Today, the Royal Bank of Scotland sits harmoniously in a sleek shiny building in Bankside. The bank is close to the Tate Modern and just a short walk from the South Bank exhibition centres, so if you are conducting business in the area or you are just visiting as a tourist, it is a great place to stay. The Southwark Rose Hotel offers elegant modern rooms close to Southwark Bridge, perfectly situated for Borough Market. Mercure London City is situated on Bankside and offers chic, modern rooms. Bankside House is a student residence, but also operates as a two-star hotel and offers low-cost rooms in a 5-star location, and Novotel London City offers great amenities and comfortable rooms for reasonable rates.
