Old Banknotes

We’re heading for England soon and found a number of old, paper, banknotes.

I got the impression from the Bank of England website that we’ll have to go to their offices on Threadneedle Street to exchange them, though the website didn’t explicitly say that.

Is my impression correct, or can we go to any bank to make the exchange?

Thanks for your help.

Your impression is correct - go to the Bank of England - but spend a little time in their museum too.

Yes, but you don't have to visit the BoE in person. You can do it by post too, including from overseas. Click on "Exchanging banknotes from overseas" at the link below:
