Lloyds, Natwest, Halifax, Bank of Scotland and Royal Bank of Scotland are all set to close down physical locations, with customer preferences changing and banks also looking to cut costs.

Lloyds is closing 26 branches, Halifax is shutting nine, Natwest is ending operations at 40 locations, Royal Bank of Scotland, which is owned by Natwest, is shutting two, and Bank of Scotland is closing down four branches.

These closures will begin in June and run until the end of November, and are taking place in major cities like London and Leeds, as well as smaller, more rural locations with only one bank branch.

Hundreds of bank branches are already set to shut down this year in the name of efficiency and convenience.

A Lloyds Banking Group spokesperson said: “Our customers are increasingly using digital channels to manage their money – we now have over 20 million regular digital users so it’s important we continue to develop the online services our customers want to use. Our branches will continue to be an option for our customers, alongside our telephone services, mobile app and online bank.”

"All of the branch locations announced for closure have a Post Office and at least one free to use ATM nearby.

"As with all proposed closures, these plans have been through LINK’s independent cash-access assessment, where a number of enhancements have been recommended.

"All colleagues who work at these branches will move to a role at another branch or in another part of our business, there are no job losses as a result of these changes."

"All closures have been made in line with the Access to Banking Standard and FCA guidance."
