Bank of Scotland, Halifax and Lloyds to close 276 branches in 2023/24 – here's the full list, plus alternatives

Bank of Scotland, Halifax and Lloyds, which are all part of the Lloyds Banking Group, will shut at least 276 of their bank branches in 2023 and 2024, after the Group announced a further 45 closures today (Wednesday 29 November).

The banks currently have a combined 1,191 branches left. Below, we've rounded up the planned closures for each bank and what the alternatives are if you still want face-to-face banking.

Click on your bank's name for a full list of the branch closures announced so far:

  • Bank of Scotland – four more branches closing (32 in total).
  • Halifax – 22 more branches closing (99 in total).
  • Lloyds – 19 more branches closing (145 in total).

Alternatives if you still want face-to-face banking

For full details on your alternatives, see our Bank branch alternatives guide. But in brief, you can:

  • See if there's a Bank of Scotland or Lloyds Bank 'mobile branch' near you. This can be used for banking services, such as making deposits and withdrawing cash. You can check if your town is covered and see the timetable on the Bank of Scotland website and on the Lloyds Bank website.

  • Check if Halifax's 'community bankers' are visiting your area. They may visit an area for a short period of time after a branch closes. They'll have a dedicated office space in a local venue for you to chat in private and can offer support with account enquiries, though they don't offer cash or counter services. Check if a community banker is visiting your area on Halifax's website and then just turn up.

  • Try a nearby Post Office. You can withdraw cash and make deposits into your bank account via the Post Office.

If you need branch access and don't have alternative services nearby, consider switching

If you no longer want to stay with Bank of Scotland, Halifax or Lloyds, 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 currently offering cash switching incentives include:

  • Nationwide: get a free £200 for switching to Nationwide's FlexDirect account. You can also get access to its top-paying regular savings account, which pays 8% interest on up to £200 a month. Nationwide has pledged not to leave any town or city where it is already based until at least 2026.
  • First Direct: get a free £175 for switching to First Direct's 1st Account. In addition to the free switch cash and top service, you'll get access to a linked regular saver which pays 7% interest on up to £300 a month, and many get an ongoing £250 0% overdraft. The debit card is also fee-free for overseas spending and ATM withdrawals.

    First Direct doesn't have any branches of its own, but First Direct customers can use HSBC branches to pay in cheques, as well as deposit and withdraw cash. So it could be an option if you have an HSBC branch nearby – though bear in mind HSBC is also closing lots of branches.

See our Best bank accounts guide for more options including the best bank accounts for savings interest and longer-term rewards.
