Hi dorsetsunset! The best place to change money is definitely NOT at the airport - the rates are horrid! I suggest you try the 3 or 4 bureaux (called KANTOR in polish) along ulica Slawkowska - one of the roads leading from the Market Square. They pretty much all have the same rates, and those are probably the best you will find. I've just changed some money there today, and the rate to the UK pound was 5.40 - oh, and I guess you are from Dorset - I went to school there long back! Regards, Jabber

hi - there are plenty of cahspoints around - I just took a little with me and then used the machines

All well and good using a cash machine - I agree they are easy to use, with all offering English language options. However, you will simply not get as good an exchange rate as changing cash, plus you will have to pay a small bank charge each time you use it - normaly around 2.50 GBP per transaction, often 'hidden' in the poor exchange rate!
