Barclays to close 96 branches in 2024 and 2025 — find out which ones

Barclays has started to announce its planned branch closures for 2024.

Barclays has announced that it’s closing more branches in 2024 and 2025 – it closed the doors of 180 of its branches in 2023. We expect that more are going to follow.

Here’s what you need to know about Barclays bank closures if you bank with Barclays.

When are the banks closing?

Every few weeks it seems that Barclays is announcing more branches will go. It’s a sneaky tactic that makes it look like fewer are going than really are. Here’s what’s been announced so far. The list further down the article tells you which branches are going and when.

12 January 202420 branches17 January 2025
1 December 202418 branches4 December 2024

You can find reasons for each closure on the Barclays website.

Opening times are changing too

Since 7 August 2023 almost all Barclays branches will open at 9.30am and close at 3pm from Monday to Friday. They now close at 1pm on Saturdays. There are a few exceptions for branches in some shopping centres which stay open later in the week.

What to do if your branch is closing

If you use your branch

If you do regularly visit a branch it’s going to be bad news. You can pay in and withdraw money from your local Post Office, which might be enough, though there may be limitations on how amounts per day.

Alternatively, you can open up another account at a bank which does have a local branch near you (though that’s not always easy at the rate they are going at all the banks).

Depending on the new bank you choose, if you also switch (which will close your existing Barclays account), you might be able to nab a switching bonus of up to £200 from the other bank.

Plus 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.

However you don’t need to switch to access another branch – you can just open an account with that bank direct.

If you don’t use your branch

The reason the branches are closing is that very few Barclays transactions are done in person. So if you do everything online, you’re probably not going to worry about losing access to a branch’s facilities.

In that case you don’t have to do anything, and can keep your Barclays account. If you do, make sure you’ve joined the Barclays Blue Rewards scheme to access the Rainy Day saver account.

  1. This is tragic. The Oldham one is going, I thought ah well at least I still haveRochdale andAshton but ones marked and the other has already gone

  2. We’ve lost our branch (April) and it was the last bank in the town. Nearest bank is now 17 miles away

    1. Its so sad, it feels very strange
