NatWest to close 23 more branches this year – here's the full list, plus alternatives
NatWest has announced it will close a further 23 bank branches between April and June this year, on top of the 43 branches that have either already closed or are set to close between January and March. 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 NatWest
See if there's a 'mobile branch' or RBS branch near you.
NatWest runs a mobile branch service that can be found at various locations throughout the year, for up to five days at a time. The service lets you do everyday banking including making deposits, withdrawing cash and paying bills.
You can find out where your nearest mobile branch is, or when it will next be in your area, on the NatWest website.
NatWest customers can also use Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) branches for everyday banking such as cash deposits and withdrawals and paying in cheques – find your nearest RBS branch.
You can access some banking services via the Post Office
Customers of most UK banks, including NatWest 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:
- Cash/cheque deposits.
- Checking your balance.
- Withdrawing money.
If you need branch access and don't have alternative services nearby, consider switching
If you no longer want to stay with NatWest, 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:
- Santander - get £200 for switching to Santander's Edge account. If you've never had a switch bonus from Santander before, you can get the free cash by switching a non-Santander group current account (includes Cahoot and Cater Allen) to a number of Santander's accounts. See Santander switch info for the options and our top pick.
- First Direct - get £175 for switching. Newbies who switch to First Direct can get a free £175. Plus, it's well-rated for service and offers a linked regular saver paying 7% interest. To get the free cash, you can't have ever had any account with First Direct, nor have opened a current account with sister bank HSBC since January 2019.
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.
