How to exchange old banknotes
On the Bank of England (BoE) website, there are instructions for those who are still clinging to old paper notes.
You can exchange them in the following places.
In your bank: The BoE says the easiest way to exchange notes is to deposit them in your bank. To do this you will need to visit your nearest bank branch in person.
At the post office: The post office may accept withdrawn notes as payment for goods and services, or as a deposit in any bank account.
In the Bank of England: You can post old banknotes to the BoE and then they will send you a check for money, or the equivalent in new polymer notes.
Send photocopies of your banknote and ID card to the Department NEX, Bank of England, Threadneedle Street, London EC2R 8AH.
You can also go to the BoE in person to exchange old notes. You may be asked to complete a form and provide two original identification documents.
The BoE may also accidentally exchange torn, damaged or broken notes – as long as they are genuine and counterfeit.
