Can one approaches TO the bank? Approach as a verb vs as a noun "She approached the bank", "Then he swung round and approached the table [...]". I've seen that 'approach' as a verb is not customarily followed by 'to'. Can I say that one approaches to the bank or to the table? As a noun, the Oxford Learner's Dictionary exemplifies: "All the approaches to the palace were guarded by troops." (by the way, why not "by the troops?") So, can I approach to something/someone?

You are correct. 'Approach' as a verb is not followed by 'to' but rather directly by the object of the verb. I approach the bank. My approach to the bank from the rear.
