exchanging pounds

I have noticed the exchange rate here in the UK is about 4.4 zlotys to the pound.I am wondering should i get a small amount of polish currency here and get the rest as i need it in poland?

hi, take some amount of zloty, just not to exchange at the airport (bad rate). In the town they can give you 4,62 zl for a pound. (present GBP buy rate)

Hi i got back from Krakowe this morning and was getting 4.67 Zloty to the pound around town but when you get to the airport there is a kiosk across from the arrivals entry they are selling Zloty's at a good rate of 5.1 to the pound.

I'm pretty sure 5.1 must be the rate that they're selling pounds at. The airport is not a good place to change money.
