125 years of h&T

Today we are proud to be the industry leader in modern pawnbroking, a lending principle that dates back 100’s of years allowing people to borrow money based on the value of their assets.

We’ve come a long way from our humble beginnings in 1897, when Mr Harvey and Mr Thompson first registered the ltd. business and opened its inaugural store in London to a UK wide, FCA regulated business. Today we’re present in over 270 high street locations throughout England, Scotland and Wales, trusted by over 100,000 customers every year.

It all started with Pawnbroking, and to this day we continue to offer this core service in all our stores - along with a host of others like travel money, gold purchase and cheque cashing. Our pre-owned retail operation has now expanded into all stores offering excellent value on new and pre-owned jewellery as well as Swiss watches.

We’re incredibly proud of the H&T we see today. It wouldn't be possible without the continued hard work and dedication of our 1,400 colleagues constantly striving to ensure our service and customer experiences meet your expectations. We’ll continue to evolve our business to best fit the needs of a modern, changing lifestyle.

And to our loyal customers, thank you for trusting us, we will continue to help support you and the communities you live in now and for years to come.
