More than 600 bank branches across the UK have been announced for closure – a bleak milestone for 2023, with 189 to be shuttered next year.

In the last few days, Lloyds Banking Group has confirmed 45 branches will close between March and November 2024.

This is split between 19 Lloyds Bank, 22 Halifax and four Bank of Scotland branches.

Lloyds said over four in five customers now regularly use online banking, with branch visits in those 45 locations falling by an average of 53% (and up to 71%) in the last five years.

A spokesperson, added: “The way customers choose to bank with us has changed rapidly in recent years, and we now offer a wide range of options for their everyday banking needs. This includes our mobile app, online and over the phone. Customers can also bank with us through the Post Office, in a banking hub or by speaking to a community banker. All colleagues will be offered other roles across our business.”

Meanwhile, Barclays will shutter 18 high street locations in March 2024, with one branch (55 Market Place, Richmond) set to close in December.

Barclays which only confirmed 16 bank branch closures a couple of weeks ago, told us it’s also down to the shift towards digital banking – either online or via the app – with fewer people interacting in branch.

A Barclays spokesperson, said: “As visits to branches continue to fall, we need to adapt to provide the best service for all our customers. Where there is no longer enough demand to support a branch, we maintain an in-person presence though our Barclays Local network, live in over 300 locations, based in libraries, town halls, mobile vans and our banking pods. We also support access to cash with our cashback without purchase service, 24-hour deposit-taking ATMs and by working alongside the Post Office and Cash Access UK.”

The latest list of bank branches set to close

All-in-all in 2023, 641 branches have been flagged for closure, according to data supplied to LINK, the UK’s cash access and ATM network.

While the majority of bank branches have already closed in the past year, 189 will disappear in 2024.

Alternative ways to continue in-person banking

Customers can visit banking hubs which provide basic banking services including counter services run by the major banks and the Post Office. There are also dedicated rooms where customers can see community bankers from their own bank for more complicated matters that require specialist knowledge or privacy.

According to LINK, there are currently 19 banking hubs open. These include Acton (London) Axminster (Devon), Barton-upon-Humber (Lincolnshire), Brechin (Angus), Brixham (Devon), Cambuslang (Lanarkshire), Carnoustie (Angus), , Clay Cross (Derbyshire), Cottingham (East Riding of Yorkshire), Hornsea (East Riding of Yorkshire), Kilkeel (County Down), Kirkcudbright (Dumfries and Galloway), Knaresborough (North Yorkshire), Maryport (Cumbria), Newton Aycliffe (County Durham), Prestatyn (Denbighshire), Rochford (Essex), Troon (Ayrshire) and Welling (Greater London).

There are also five temporary hubs open in Buckingham (Buckinghamshire), Cheadle (Staffordshire), Forres (Moray), Royal Wooton Bassett (Wiltshire) and Syston (Leicestershire) ahead of moving into the permanent hubs in the near future.

LINK has also confirmed that Richmond in North Yorkshire is to receive a banking hub following the announcement that the town’s final branch is set to close.

It is the 100th location in the UK to be recommended by LINK to receive a banking hub.

John Howells, CEO, LINK, said: “High streets are at the heart of our communities and banking hubs are helping to bring life back to them. More people are banking and shopping online meaning they’re not visiting ATMs or bank branches as often as they used to. It’s still critical that we’re able to provide free access to cash and face-to-face banking services.”

Gareth Oakley, CEO, Cash Access UK, said: “Cash Access UK is delighted to be bringing shared cash and banking services to communities across the UK. We’re on a rapid rollout programme and are on track to have 30 open by Christmas and 50 by Easter.”
