?

The paper ones aren't legal tender in the UK anymore so you shouldn't have any and won't find them to take to Cyprus.

Why would an exchange house refuse to take legal tender ?

I wasn't aware that I was being rude, blunt maybe but not rude.

I was stating a fact - paper notes are not legal tender in the UK

and

asking a question in return - why would an exchange house refuse to take legal tender ?

Yes, they do - if you are going to Protaras, try Nick's bottle shop opposite Artemis hotel - his rates are usually better than others.

You can post the paper £10 notes directly to the Bank of England. They will exchange them for plastic ones.

Gary I work in a bank and we exchange the old notes. I expect most banks do.
