I always use UK Forex who seem to give one of, if not the best, rate of exchange and no charges for amounts above £3000. Polite, quick service and very secure.

http://www.ukforex.co.uk

For example, today's spot rate on 10k is 1.1461

I always use Afex. I call them, tell them how much I want to transfer and then transfer pounds to them. A day later it shows in my Spanish account as Euros. £10 fee per transfer, no matter how much.

I've looked at a couple of others - advertising good rates, but when it came down to it Afex were a better deal. I haven't looked at ukforex.

You will need to set up an account initially with any of these companies due to money laundering laws.

We've used www.iceplc.com on many occassions. They deliver by RM Special Delivery the next day if your can get funds cleared to them before 3pm.  The rate at the moment is 114.13 to the £.  There's no charge for orders over £400.
We also use a CaxtonFX card.
