Default Best way to exchange currency for British Isles

Dear Cruisemates,
We're heading for the British Isles for a cruise on the Royal Princess. What's the best way to handle the currency exchange, by British Pounds at my local bank, exchange dollars for pounds when I get there and where, other ideas?
Thanks for the information.
Bop

Our experience on getting the best rates, is to get local money at the ATM machines. This avoids some horrendous fees payed at money exchanges, and even banks. Just contact your ATM bank and make sure your ATM card has international privlidges. If not, the bank can set you up very easily.

I head right for the ATM in the bank. Best rate, no fee.
