Branch closures in England and Wales | Royal Bank of Scotland



Important information about our branches in England and Wales

We are closing some branches.

As customers change the way they bank with us, we must change the way that we serve them and this means that some branches will have to close. Closing a branch is a decision we take very seriously. We know it can affect people in the local area and we’ll always work hard to guide you through the changes and find the best way to serve you from now on.

You'll find more information below about each of the branches that are closing and this will tell you about the alternative ways you can do your banking locally.
