53 more Halifax and Lloyds branches to close in 2023

Find out which ones are going and your options if affected.

There’s been yet another announcement by a big high street bank that the doors will close on a number of branches this year.

This time it’s the turn (again) of Lloyds and Halifax bank. Here’s what you need to know.

When are the banks closing?

Lloyds, Halifax and Bank of Scotland have announced that 53 branches will go by November of this year. And his isn’t the first announcement this year. In total 132 will go across the banking group.

In March, the figures were 26 Lloyds, 9 Halifax and four Bank of Scotland. While back in January, the banking group announced 40 branches will close between April and June this year. 22 will be Lloyds and the remaining 18 will be Halifax. That’s on top of 3 previously announced to go this year and another 16 which closed at the start of the year.

Add that to the 186 which went in 2022 and another 100 in 2020 and 2021, and you’re looking at a huge number of closures.

What to do if your branch is closing

For most of us it probably means very little. When did you actually last need to use a branch? If you aren’t at all fussed about losing access to a branch’s facilities you don’t have to do anything (though more in a moment about why you could).

For others who do regularly visit a branch it will make a huge difference. The obvious solution is to open up another account at a bank which does have a local branch near you. You don’t have to switch to this new bank (which would mean the closure of your Lloyd or Halifax account) if you don’t want to, but doing so does have some advantages.

All your Direct Debits, standing orders and payments into your account will be moved over for you, so you won’t need to change anything manually. And right now you could get a switching bonus of up to £200.

But if you do switch you’ll lose access to benefits you get with these banks. The main perks are:

  • Halifax Reward Account – £5 a month, or 12 cinema tickets a year, or 24 movie rentals a month (account review)
  • Club Lloyds Account – 6.25% regular saver plus 6 cinema tickets a year, Disney+ or a magazine subscription (account review)

Personally I’d stick with the account but open up a new account for whichever alternative you have nearby (here’s a full list of the different perks they offer).

And even if you aren’t bothered, I’d still do this. I think it’s always handy to have physical access to a bank. You never quite know what will happen with online and app banking, and having the option to talk to someone can make things easier.

Plus if you do need to withdraw or pay in large amounts of cash, you’ll probably want to do that in person too.

  1. Don’t forget that you all have access to bank through the huge network of Post Offices. (With the Exception of theNationwide, into which you cannot pay in money or checks, but can withdraw cash). All the major banks operate through the Post Offices. Deposits of cash are almost instantaneous and cheques just a couple of days. For the post office, running a small village office and it is very underutilised for banking which is such a shame. I think most the time it’s because people aren’t aware how much banking they can do at the local post office

  2. Why don’t all these different banks building societies close , why can’t 2/3/or four just use one premises ,?. I had an nationwide account in a town ,and they closed it ,and guess what another small b s took over the premises , and the manager was the nationwide manager ,he said nationwide made a profit not a loss so did it get closed? I closed my account and moved to the new bsc
