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.

For those that haven't visited Knaresborough before, it really is a gem of a market town. Offering a great balance of transport links and rural countryside, it is located between Leeds and York, a few minutes from the A1, easily accessible by road or rail. The popular spa town of Harrogate is a couple of miles down the road or 5 minutes on the train, with the infamous Betty's Tea Rooms.
Knaresborough is full of surprises, a warren of medieval streets and stone staircases that weave their way up and down the cliffs on which the town sits. Along the river Nidd you will find a delightful promenade that traps the sun in summer, with a coastal feel despite being more than 60 miles from the sea, making a great place to enjoy an ice-cream or indulge in the traditional English pastime of ‘simply mucking about in boats’ beneath the imposing railway viaduct that spans above.
The region is popular for walking, mountain biking, caving, golfing, canoeing, gorge walking and so much more.
Our Perfect Day in Knaresborough
The sun peeks through the blinds and upon drawing them, you’re faced with beautiful blue skies and the sun shining on your face. For breakfast there are several option, Wilkinson’s Butchers (01423 862239) just by the front door to the apartments does a mean bacon buttie but it would be a shame to miss out on the sunshine. The River Side Cafe offers alfresco dining in the morning sun together with spectacular views up and down the River Nidd (01423 546759), worth making a reservation, although next door, The Black Mulberry do a great breakfast too.
After breakfast, why not hire a boat for a couple of hours and have a paddle at your leisure along the river? Followed by the Riverside Walk downstream. For lunch, we recommend The Half Moon Free House, the friendly bar staff have a great selection of real ales, cheese and meat platters. The courtyard is a great sun-trap at this time of day.
After lunch, no trip to Knaresborough would be complete without a visit to the Castle Ruins for the iconic views of the Nidd Gorge. There’s not much left of the castle itself but there are plenty of information boards and places to sit and enjoy the views. The infamous Mother Shipton’s Cave & the Petrifying Wall, serves as a nice afternoon trip, it can be a little bit expensive but well worth a visit.
After retiring back to the apartments for a freshen up, diner at Carriages Wine Bar is a lovely way to spend the evening. Reservations are a must as the small but well renowned restaurant and bar will book up quickly.
Located in a listed building above a Victorian train tunnel on Knaresborough’s High Street, Carriages is a restaurant and bar serving supreme British and European cuisine (plus a selection of pan-Asian bites) alongside a peerless selection of fine wine and ales, which can also be enjoyed or in the beer garden.
Six Poor Folk, Blind Jacks and, or The Courtyard Bar & Grill all do great beers with a great atmosphere and depending on which night, live music.
