Santander has today announced it is relocating its Bradford Darley Street branch to The Broadway Shopping Centre, situated on Petergate Mall. Work on the branch has already commenced and is expected to be opening in early March 2023. 

The new branch will be the new permanent location in Bradford replacing the existing branch on Darley Street, following the identification of extensive structural issues at the site. 

Prior to the new branch opening, there continues to be a weekday courtesy return bus service which runs from opposite the Midland Hotel to the Shipley branch.  The return service operates an hourly service with the first departure at 9.30am and the last at 1.30pm. In order to access the service, customers simply need to prove they have an account with the bank, such as by showing their debit card.   

Richard Owen, Head of Branch Interactions at Santander UK, said: “We’re delighted to announce our new site conveniently located in the heart of Bradford city centre. The new Broadway Shopping Centre branch will accommodate the needs of our local customers and focus on delivering great customer service, with modern, digital services including free Wi-Fi, customer tablets and digital ATMs. We look forward to welcoming customers to our new home in early-2023 but, in the meantime, we hope the return courtesy bus service will prove useful.” 

In addition to the courtesy bus service that can be used ahead of the opening of the new Broadway Shopping Centre, customers can access various banking services by visiting their local Post Office. Alternatively, they can manage their account via online or mobile banking, or through telephone banking.  

The address of the new branch will be: 
Petergate Mall,
The Broadway Centre,
