Lloyds Bank has announced its Rosslyn Hill branch in Hampstead will shut for good in August.
From August 21, customers will have to travel to either Kentish Town or Kilburn if they want to visit a branch of the bank in person rather than using online or telephone banking.
On its website, the bank said: "Our customers' needs are changing. Over 14million people now bank with us through internet banking and almost 10m use mobile banking.
You may also want to watch:
"Branches will remain vital in meeting customers' needs but we must continually review our network to make sure we have branches in locations where customers need and use them the most."
The historic Grade II-listed building's future is now uncertain.
Built in 1896 by Horace Field, to this day it retains the features of the original banking hall inside.
