Barclays to close ANOTHER 15 bank branches – here's the full list, plus alternatives

Barclays will shut at least 180 of its bank branches throughout 2023 and 2024 – more than a third of its entire UK network – after announcing a further 15 branch closures. Below we list the branches disappearing and what the alternatives are if you still want face-to-face banking.

Alternative ways to bank face-to-face with Barclays

If your local Barclays is still open, be mindful that as of 7 August, almost all Barclays branches changed their opening hours to 9.30am to 3pm, Monday to Friday, with the counter open full time. A "small number", including some in shopping centres, are open longer. You can check the opening times of your local branch on the Barclays website.

For those whose local branch is closing, there are still ways to access face-face banking services: 


  • Withdraw cash: Try a free ATM, post office or banking hub. 
  • Depositing cash or cheques: Try a post office or banking hub. 
  • Talk to someone from your bank: Barclays runs an educational and support van for Barclays and Barclaycard customers in England and Wales, as well as 200 pop-up banking sites, located in spaces such as community centres, libraries and business hubs. However, these don't have cash or counter services, so you won't be able to manage your money there.

For more ways to access banking services when your branch closes down, see our Bank branch alternatives guide for full details.

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. 

Most other high street banks are also closing branches this year; read more on the closures at Bank of ScotlandHalifaxHSBCLloydsNationwideNatWestSantander and TSB.

Banks currently offering cash switching incentives include:

  • NatWest / RBS – get £200 for switching, plus up to £36 a year cashback. To get the £200, you can't have had a switch bonus from these banks since October 2017. You'll also need to complete a full switch, pay in £1,250-plus and use the app within 60 days of opening the new account. 
  • First Direct – get £175 for switching, plus fee-free overseas spending. To get the £175 you can't have ever had ANY First Direct account before and you'll need to pay in at least £1,000 within three months of switching. You also can't have opened an account with its sister bank HSBC since January 2020.

    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.
