You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Also see below for all the Building Societies around Your Postcode with their contact details. Just click through to go to a map, street views, reviews and a link to their own websites.

Our Blessed Lady Immaculate Catholic Church

As a parishioner at this parish, I would recommend this church. I have felt very than welcome by the priests. Not only will you receive good Catholic teaching here but you will find good Liturgy here as well. Fr. Mark is absolutely wonderful. I do find Fr. James message very simple to understand and theologically sound. The priests are very friendly. There's a nice traditional choir and some times contemporary choir at the 11:00 Mass, and at 18:00 is the Sunday evening Mass. If you want to know more about our parish, please come and see!

Most friendly of churches.

Came here for a meal with my wife and the food was tasty and lovely. The service was top notch with a nice relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely be coming back 🙂

Really lovely food, reasonably priced and very friendly staff. Would definitely go back.

Concord Tandoori

Cracking restaurant on the high street. Been going here for many years. Good food and very friendly staff and owner. There is one other Indian restaurant at the top of the bank, but this is deffinately the better of the two. They also offer a take away service.


San Lorenzo Washington

55 New Rd, Washington NE38 9AT, UK – 0191 419 5161

Lovely staff who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They were able to make me vegan food, had great drinks offers and even brought food/water out for our dog. Portions are generous and ambience is great. Outdoor seating with a nice view of Penshaw Monument and St George's Church in the distance. Definitely recommend.

Visited Tuesday - 2nd time here, the 1st time we went it was October last year and it was average but the menu had been changed this time and all of the starters and mains were extremely good. Prawns are absolutely massive - it's not your average pizza/pasta place and well worth paying a little bit more for the variety and quality of produce. For a Tuesday it was busy enough and had a nice ambience. Service was excellent. Will definitely go again.

Oxclose Community Nursery School

40 Brancepeth Rd, Washington NE38 0LA, UK – 0191 416 6767

I moved my son to Oxclose Nursery for 5 terms after being at private nursery from the age of 1 and sending him there was the best decision I ever made. The Headteacher and staff are all friendly and approachable, and they worked wonders on his behaviour and social skills. He was very happy and well-cared for there, and the extensive range of activities available were both fun and educational. He loved being there and didn't want to leave to start primary school. We regularly pop in for visits and the staff are always interested to hear what he's been up to and what progress he has made since. A great place for children to begin their education!

Excellent nursery, the staff are brilliant. My kids love it here.

George Washington Primary School

Well Bank Road, Washington NE37 1NL, UK – 0191 219 3735

I go to this school and we include a swimming pool. We are the only school in Washington that has one so lots of schools come swimming here. Our school also has a large hall and a studio .A library is also available for students. When we do ICT, we use the computer room. Mr Wilson, the technology person, is very handy during functional meltdowns. Our head teacher is called Mrs Taylor, and she is very kind. We also have a deputy head named Mrs McCardle, she used to be a teacher in year 6 but she isn't any more. Nowadays, we have a school councillor who is always there to help and chat. All children treat each other with respect, as we are all told to. I must say I am sad to be leaving this year, as I am going to comp. I will definitely miss all of the teachers, and the school's facilities.

All 3 of our children have attended this school, excellent facilities and recently built. Includes a swimming pool.
