I use a Caxton FX as they always give better rates. It is basically a prepaid debit card so you can use it in shops and restaurants and it costs you nothing and you dont get stiffed by the exchange rate again as the card is in euros.

There is a 2 euro charge for using the ATM but as I take out all the cash I need in one go then it still works out better. Also some shops now do cashback which doesn't cost you.

Todays rate is 1.25 euros to the pound or $1.95 to the pound.

Also its much safer than carrying lots of cash around.
