No – a Notary is not Solicitor. They are a different type of lawyer. A Solicitor’s priority is their clients, whereas a Notary’s priority has to be the transaction and the authenticity and validity of the documentation they are asked to notarise.
Only Notaries who have trained and qualified and who are regulated by the Faculty Office of England and Wales can act as a Notary in the UK.
