This Grade 1 listed building was designed by George Skipper and opened in 1905 as the head offices of the Norwich Union Life Insurance Society, today known as Aviva. They still use it but have long since outgrown it, so they have offices attached to the back. Much of the marble same from Siena.

The most eye-catching aspect as you approach are the windows at the lowest level of the façade; they are each protected by three golden wyverns.
