Try buying online at travelex and collecting at the airport. They will match anyones rate. However I found a few small travel bureus round kings x and victoria offer better rates with no commission if you are in london.
Marks and Spencer seem to have good rates - also co-op travel
try this comparison site

i used travelex before, can reccomend them. free next day special delivery. i ordered one day, they rang me to check i had ordered, and recieved the next day.
advice is to pay via bank card because they charge for credit card use.
I agree with "laltufan" M&S are always a good place to buy.
I'm going for New Year. Bought £500 US @rate of 2.0142 on Monday which was slightly better than Marks. Commission free and they will price match.
Got $2.07 today - small bureau de change near Regent Street
m&s was about 2.01 today for them selling
Get a Nationwide account and take it out of the "Hole in Wall" when you get there no charge and you get Business Rates. Whenever I go abroad I only take around £50 in exchanged cash and get the rest when I get there.

Of course if your not going soon and want to stock up while they are "cheap" then I don't know, but I can't see the Dollar recovering anytime soon. It will probs get worse (for the americans) then anything.
I got my dollars from either the money store or cheque centre for my holiday in August when i went to Vegas as they seemed to offer a little better rate than other shops on the highstreet when I got mine. Dont know if this is still going to be the case though
go to Marks and Spencers on High Street - normally the best for high streets b-d-c. also commission free
if buying over 500 quid the post office was 2.02 yesterday (obviously the rate goes up and down daily) and its comission free.
