Our Heritage

Our roots run deep.

At your service since 1695.

When Lloyds Banking Group was formed in 2009, it brought together many well-known brands, including Lloyds, Halifax, Bank of Scotland and Scottish Widows.

Our combined history stretches back more than 300 years, and encompasses a diverse range of businesses.  Each company has its own story to tell.  Together they present a truly extraordinary heritage, of which we are justifiably proud.

2015 is a milestone year for Lloyds Banking Group: Scottish Widows is 200 years old in January, and Lloyds Bank will reach 250 years in June.
