Note High value (especially the £50) banknotes can cause problems for small traders. They could be rejected or cause checkout delays.
Note The Bank of England will probably release images of the new 10 note in July 2017. This picture is in circulation but there may be differences in the finished design. Unless there is a major deviation form tradition, we can expext an image of Queen Elizabeth II on the face of this new banknote.
Possible new 10 Pound Note
 
We are not in the Euro Zone. Most outlets will not accept foreign currencies and those that do may offer a very poor exchange rate.
Most banks, larger post offices and some travel agents provide a currency exchange service but you may be asked for proof of identity.
Exchanges may advertise a 0% commission but it is still worth shopping around because the exchange rates vary.
 
Money - Scottish and Northen Ireland Currency
These countries, which are part of the United Kingdom issue their own bank notes. Scotland/Northern Ireland notes are "legal" in Pembrokeshire but they are not "Legal Tender." This means that shops in England and Wales "may" decide to accept them but they can refuse them. Banks are more likely to accept these notes than small shops.
 
It is very unusual to see Scottish or Northern Ireland notes in Pembrokeshire, hence, they are often treated with suspicion.
