Portman Square, London Closing 23 February 2023

The only Nationwide branch closure set for the rest of the year is the Portman Square branch based in Marylebone, London which closes on 23 February. 

It’s good news for Nationwide customers as the bank has made a promise to its customers that all other branches will remain until at least 2024, so there will be no further Nationwide branch closures apart from Portman Square. 

Nationwide's CEO Debbie Crosbie confirmed this to the public in early June last year. She said: "Supporting members through the cost-of-living crisis is my immediate priority. That’s why I’ve decided to extend our Promise to keep branches on the high street."

2022 did see a number of sudden branch closures including five in London, one in Gloucestershire and one closure in Langley. 

A Nationwide spokesperson said it was down to sustainability reasons. "For example where one requires significant investment and where there are modern branches nearby, we need to determine whether it makes more sense to use that money to improve and retain branches elsewhere in our network, particularly in areas where there is lower provision,” they said. 

The closure of the Hampstead branch was down to a drop in customers. Nationwide told Ham High: "And only 1% of Hampstead members are using their respective branches exclusively and frequently."

Nationwide says if a branch near you has closed, you can go into another branch to seek support or call 0345 2660 268 to talk through your options.

Alternative ways to access cash if your branch has closed

If you are affected by the closures, here are some alternative ways you can access cash. 

ATM for withdrawals. If you want to withdraw cash, you can go to any free ATM to get cash. If you are withdrawing from a current account, the maximum you can withdraw per day at an ATM is £300. If you hold a premier or platinum account, you can withdraw up to £1,000 per day. 

Post office. For those of you that prefer to go in and get cash, the Post Office is your next best option. You can withdraw cash, but Nationwide customers can't yet pay in cash or cheques. Check where your closest Post Office is using their branch finder by entering your postcode. 

Cashback options. You can kill two birds with one stone when doing your shopping and asking for cashback at a supermarket. The same goes for convenience stores and newsagents. They usually offer up to £100 cashback. You can use the Link Locator which will tell you the closest place you can get cashback.
