If you get points at Tescos then better to go there than the Post Office ........ :)

I got my Euros from the Halifax .. (1.20)
If you have an account with them it will work out better I think ...
( the Nationwides rate is pretty good too) :thumbsup:

couple of handy exchange links :

you will generally get better rates at your destination.

I exchange my money in tesco....... although the exchange rate from pund sterling to liters of petrol has shot up!!! stick with exchanging it to tins of "value" beans, you get more to the pound

I always shop around and play one agent against another. Go in and ask how much for a fixed amount and then say you had a better offer form another agent. They will often improve your offer straight away. We made an extra £90 last week by this method

or use the nationwide debit card abroad to withdraw cash as excellent exchange rates and zero charges. In Spain, always elect to withdraw in Euros rather than sterling as if you select sterling then you withdraw euros and the issuing bank does the exchange to sterling at terrible rates.

personally, I couldnt be bothered to go chasing from one agent to another trying to haggle when you will always get a better rate abroad.

Fair point. But we always take some local currency to pay for taxi from the airport etc. and with several travel agents in every High Street it is hardly hard work to walk from one to the next

Easy tiger, tongue firmly in cheek for that one.

Anywho its nothing to do with the population what designates a village.

Village has a parish church/communal hall.

Town - Town Hall and Borough Charter, own council.

City - Cathedral.

That is simplified though generally it is defined by the church buildings in the settlement.

Not quite true these days. Many a city does not have a cathedral (e.g Brighton). Shoreham has an out of town tescos so it must be a town ;-)

Well when we move away from that definition then I wil agree with you since this is still being taught in GSCE Geography I rest my case.

Check out Fordwich, Britains smallest town.

Whatever check out Fordwich then your definition is blown out of the water regardless of the curriculum and then check Britain's largest village.

whatever? Are you american? lol

Brighton does not have a cathedral like many other cities. Point proven.

BTW, I never gave a definition. You did! Which clearly does not apply despite what schools teach.

Brighton is conurbation, the forming of 2 towns, Brighton and Hove to form a city.

Like I said my defnitions were of the simplest form.

If you check my examples and actually take time to think alittle you will understand rather than trying to be obtuse.

simplest form maybe. Wrong? Yes.

lol, give up you clearly haven't given any foundation to your argument, you don't reply to each of my points purposefully, therefore you have a baseless argument. So what is wrong compared to zero evidence you have offered up?
