Changing the way Britain banks

We’ve built a different kind of high street bank. A bank with stores that are open when it suits you, 7 days a week. A bank where you can walk in without an appointment and walk out with a working account, debit card and all. A bank that tells you exactly what you’re getting, in language that actually makes sense. A bank that puts you first.

A fresh start to banking

Metro Bank first opened its doors in the summer of 2010, the first high street bank to open in the UK in over 100 years. 

Bringing personal service back to banking

Every store is open 7 days a week, and from 8am–8pm on weekdays. No need to book an appointment, just walk in at a time that is right for you.

Banking. But better

We keep our products simple and we do the same for our rates and charges, so you’ll always know exactly what you’re getting. No more nasty surprises in the small print.

What we're all about

We're committed to making a difference and delivering a different type of banking for Britain.

Committed to customer service

We are committed to providing you with unparalleled levels of service and convenience. This is why our stores are open 7 days a week, and from 8am to 8pm on weekdays. We offer a super-quick account opening, on the spot card printing as well as a 24/7 London-based contact centre.

Committed to the community

It's really important to us that we give something back to the communities we serve. Every year we host thousands of charity and business networking events across our stores.

Committed to kids

Kids matter at Metro Bank. Every year we help thousands of children take their first steps with money. We encourage them to save and count their coins using our Magic Money Machines and learn about budgeting with our financial education programme.

Man's best friend

We love dogs at Metro Bank. We welcome them in all of our stores with fresh water bowls and biscuits.

We even go one step further to help our customers with their pets. If you rehome a dog or cat from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home and have £100 or more in your account we will help with the rehoming costs of up to £105 for your new dog or £65 for your cat. Just show us your receipt in any store.
