Barclays to shut another 10 branches this year – here's the full list, plus alternative options
Barclays has announced another round of bank branch closures, with 10 more outlets set to shut in October and November this year. The latest closures mean Barclays will close at least 107 branches by the end of the year. Below we list the branches disappearing and what the alternatives are if you still want face-to-face banking.
Barclays isn't the only bank shutting branches; last week Lloyds Banking Group confirmed it will shut a further 48 Lloyds Bank and 18 Halifax branches, taking its tally to 202 outlets closing by the end of January 2023. Elsewhere, TSB has closed 70 branches this year, while HSBC is closing 69 branches.
Alternative ways to bank face-to-face with Barclays
Here are some alternative ways to access face-to-face Barclays banking services if your local branch is closing:
Book an appointment on the Barclays van or at a 'pop-up' bank
Barclays runs an educational and support van that enables Barclays and Barclaycard customers in England and Wales to access certain advice and help in their local area at specific times and dates each month. You can check if a nearby town is covered on Barclays' website.
Under the 'Barclays van' service customers can get advice on:
- Buying a new home.
- Online banking.
- Saving for the future.
- Setting up a business.
You can access similar support at one of Barclays's pop-up banking sites, located in spaces such as community centres, libraries and business hubs – find your nearest on the Barclays website.
However, the Barclays van service and pop-up locations don't have cash or counter services, so you won't be able to manage your money there. If you need to access to these services you can use a Post Office branch.
You can access some Barclays services via the Post Office
Barclays customers can access certain services from any of the Post Office's 11,400 branches. Use the Post Office's branch finder tool to locate your nearest. Services available include the following:
- Cash/cheque deposits.
- Check your balance.
- Withdraw money.
If you need branch access and don't have alternative services nearby, consider switching
If you no longer want to stay with Barclays, you might want to consider switching to a bank that does have a local branch nearby – although bear in mind there's no guarantee that too won't close.
Banks with branches that currently have switching incentives include:
- Halifax - get £150 for switching. Halifax Reward pays switchers £150 and offers ongoing monthly rewards if you jump through a few hoops. You can't have had a switch bonus from Halifax since April 2020 and there's a £1,500 monthly minimum pay-in to avoid the £3 a month fee.
- Nationwide - get up to £125 for switching. Nationwide FlexDirect is offering existing customers £125 and newbies £100 (though there is a trick to get the full £125). You can't have had the bonus before and you must set up two or more direct debits to be eligible though there's no minimum pay-in. Nationwide has pledged to leave no town or city currently served by the building society without a branch until at least 2024.
See our Best bank accounts guide for the full list of banks offering switching incentives.
Some may want to consider setting up online banking
Of course, if you want to switch to banking online or via an app, Barclays has a step-by-step guide on how to set up online and app banking.
