A bit of mild haggling is acceptable at flea markets and antique shops, but everywhere else you're expected to pay the advertised price.
ATMs are widely available; Visa and MasterCard credit cards are widely accepted, but other credit cards less so.
The currency is the pound sterling (£). Paper money comes in £5, £10, £20 and £50 denominations. Other currencies are very rarely accepted.
Banks and post offices in cities and larger towns will change money; exchange rates tend to be reasonable.
For current exchange rates, see www.xe.com.
Pubs and bars Not expected if you order drinks (or food) and pay at the bar; usually 10% if you order at the table and your meal is brought to you.
Restaurants Around 10% in restaurants and teahouses with table service, 15% at smarter restaurants. Tips may be added to your bill as a 'service charge' – it's discretionary.
Taxis Usually 10%, or rounded up to the nearest pound.
