Explaining UK Currency Variations

UK Currency can be confusing for visitors, as it is not the same throughout Britain. Notes are issued by some main banks and therefore the appearance is quite variable. An example of the Bank of England, Royal Bank of Scotland and the Clydesdale Bank (another Scottish bank) are shown below. All are legal tender throughout Britain.  However, sometimes smaller shops in England are reluctant to accept Scottish notes, so it is wise to have some Bank of England notes with you for these occasions. All are accepted in Scotland. Coins are available in £1 and pence denominations: 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p & 1p (a penny).
