The NatWest bank branch in High Street Woking will close on August 21 this year, a reflection of the increasing use of online banking platforms. The nearest NatWest branch is now in Guildford, some six miles away.

Woking MP Jonathan Lord said: “Really disappointed to hear that NatWest’s Woking branch is set to close on 21 August. I’ll be contacting the CEO of NatWest raising many concerns about this decision.”
