Bank of Scotland, Halifax and Lloyds to close 177 branches in 2024/25 – 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 177 of their bank branches in 2024 and 2025, the Group has confirmed.

The banks had a combined total of 1,117 branches as of Thursday 25 April. Below, we've rounded up the planned closures for each bank and what the alternatives are if you still want face-to-face banking.

Alternative ways to bank face-to-face with Bank of Scotland, Halifax or Lloyds

Here's what to try if your local branch is closing:

  • 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. However, this won't be available for long as both banks are closing their mobile branch services on 31 May 2024.
  • Check if Bank of Scotland, Halifax or Lloyds's 'community bankers' are visiting your area. A community banker may visit your area if you no longer have a local branch. 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 and whether you'll need to book an appointment on the Bank of Scotland, Halifax and Lloyds websites.
  • Try a nearby Post Office. You can withdraw cash and make deposits into your bank account via the Post Office.

For full details on your options, see our Bank branch alternatives guide.

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.

Currently, no major banks are paying cash incentives for switching. However, there are other benefits to look out for such as cashback, savings interest and fee-free overseas spending. For the best options, see our Best bank accounts guide.
