A Closer Look: Royal Mint Court
For almost 170 years, the Royal Mint Court at Tower Hill played its part in English history by providing the location for the manufacture and minting of coins. Today, this iconic landmark is home to numerous businesses large and small, which occupy office space within the walls of the former Royal Mint and continue its legacy as a key player in UK trade and industry.
Prior to the construction of the existing Royal Mint building in 1807, the site was home to a Cistercian Abbey from the 14th to the 16th century, before it was used as the Royal Navy Victualling yard until 1784. It later became a tobacco warehouse.
The Grade II listed building which stands today was designed by architects James Johnson and Sir Robert Smirke. The site was transformed and the new building was constructed in the early 19th century, where minting took place until well into the 1970s before the process was transferred to a new location in Wales.
Its classic Georgian architecture, attractive period features and landscaped gardens make this a prestigious location for businesses. And since workspace provider Landmark PLC converted part of the building in 2000 for use as serviced office space, small and medium sized businesses now have the accessibility to base their operations here on flexible terms and also have the opportunity to expand within the building.
Recently the building has undergone a refurbishment to the North Wing and space in this part of the property has become available, which offers all the benefits of serviced space including on-site support services, a staffed reception area, meeting rooms and amenities such as car parking.
New photographs of the building show the high quality of the interior and the classical features including its high ceilings, stone pillars and large bay windows.
Gareth Smith, Account Manager at officebroker.com, visited the business centre in March and was instantly impressed by the attractive landscaped gardens and fit-out within the building.
“It’s very prestigious and has a traditional feel when you first walk in – very ornate with huge leather armchairs, high ceilings and bay windows – but it’s actually very modern and the offices are huge,” said Gareth. “Also the location is spot-on – just a couple of minutes’ walk from Tower Hill tube station.”
