William Hill is located in 30 Allerdice St, Stonehaven, AB39 2BU. There, you can find everything that William Hill generally has to offer. This bookmaker is actually one of the most popular bookmakers in the UK and its headquarters are in London. The company was established in 1934 by William Hill, who was himself an expert bookmaker. It is interesting that the company was founded when gambling in Britain was illegal but kept growing nonetheless. The net income of William Hill in 2017 was estimated at £291.3 million.
Betfred is located in 3-4 Market Square, Stonehaven, AB39 2BT. Betfred is a newer bookmaker – at least newer than William Hill. It was founded in 1967 by the Done brothers called Fred and Peter, whose first single shop was located in Ordsall, Salford. Betfred started expanding at the turn of 21th century when they managed to increase their turnover from £550 million in 2003 to £3.5 billion in 2004. The current office of Betfred is located in Birchwood, Warrington. However, they also have offices in Media City, Salford Quays, Salford.
Both of these places are just one out of hundreds of offline stores where people can drop by and bet on their favorite sports. However, there is a more convenient option if you just want to focus on exploring Stonehaven and do not have time to actually visit these bookmakers. Fortunately, Stonehaven boasts a stable internet and numerous WiFi connections, so you can use this advantage and bet even on the go. This being said, you have probably guessed so far that both William Hill and Betfred have their online versions which are even better than their store counterparts.
