We've made some changes to the Yorkshire Building Society branch network

As one of the largest and strongest building societies in the UK, we continually review how our Society is run to make sure we’re acting in the best long-term interests of all our members. That’s why, after careful consideration, we’ve closed some of our Yorkshire Building Society branches.

Details of the branches that are affected are in the table below.

Why are we making these changes?

Over time we have seen fewer of our members using branches and an increasing number using the internet to manage their accounts. We are still fully committed to offering a face-to-face service but also need to recognise the evolving ways in which customers want to transact.

Branches that are affected

To find the most convenient alternative branch for you, you can check the address details and opening hours for all of our branches and local agencies by using our branch finder .

Yorkshire Building Society local agencies

Yorkshire Building Society carefully selects businesses to act as local agencies on our behalf. Agencies are able to offer Yorkshire Building Society savings accounts and simple savings transactions. There are some differences between Yorkshire Building Society branches and Yorkshire Building Society agencies such as daily and weekly withdrawal limits, for more details please click here.
