I have around £30 worth of old fivers, but I won’t be in London with access to the Bank of England till the end of my vacation. I seem to remember a thread mentioning that the Post Office might exchange the old fives for new ones. Has anyone tried to do that recently, particularly in Bath? Or has anyone had success changing old fives in a bank that’s not the Bank of England (without being an account holder at that bank)?
If you've changed the old fivers at the Bank of England, can you tell me what the process was?
