I usually change my money on Queensway in Bayswaters, close to Kensington Gardens, there are some souvenir shops with small official currency exchange offices inside. Their rates are usually quite close to official foreign exchange rates. Nearest Tube station: Queensway. If possible stay away from the small currency exchanges on Oxford Street or around other tourist hot spots like Picadilly etc, they have usually extremely bad exchange rates.

I would avoid the more well known currency exchanges mentioned if possible.

Hi Santiago,

The best rates are offered at The Post Office, these are harder to find the more central you are and have limited opening hours at the weekend. Next best is a shop called Marks and Spencers, lots of them around town and big stores on Oxford Street.

You need to check the rates each day, but CEC (Currency Exchange Corporation Ltd) is usually very good, with branches all over London.

There's a small 'currency converter ' on The Strand.... It is definitely the best rates + very popular! I will get back to you with the name!
