History of Sovereign House

Norfolk Offices of Norwich
Sovereign House was the headquarters of the HMSO (Her Majesty’s Stationery Office) between 1968 and 1996. Sovereign House itself was located at the Anglia Square shopping precinct and was a very large brutalist office block that employed around 800 people at its peak. Though it might be surprising to know that even though Sovereign House was specifically built for the HMSO they did not own the building and in fact leased it from the owners on a 40-year lease, paying £97,000 per year in rent.
