Just been using intersango, which I don't want to use anymore
- Can't deposit GBP
- Very limited order book
- Withdrawal fee 13GBP
- Trading fee 0.65%

MtGox
- Wire tansfer fee 2000JPY ~13.8GBP
- SEPA fee 5.5PLN ~1.1GBP + exchange rate/fees???
- Trading fee 0.65%
- Arium exchange 15GBP wire transfer

Saw a recommendation for Bitstamp:
- No direct GBP: USD->EUR->GBP
- Exhange rates/fees Huh
- SEPA fee 0.90EUR
- Or Wire transfer for $15
- Trading fee 0.5%

I have US and UK banks and they charge $30 transfer (both HSBC actually... wonderful that 'The worlds local bank' charge me to transfer my own money within the same bank)

Others?

If its trading you are after; Bit Stamp is probably your best best (it's got the nicest website too) in-spite of the fees. You'll get your deposit credited in ~24hours which - compared to Mt.Gox is pretty nippy. If it's just obtaining GBP for cash you can -shameless self promotion- try us Smiley or you can use person-to-person sites like localBitcoins.com or bitbargin.co.uk (some of the guys who frequent that site also exist on the forum so you can get a pretty clear picture of the reliability of the individuals your dealing with). There is also BitcoinFridge.co.uk which is run by one of the guys on the forum (mjbmonetarymetals) and I've read many good things about.

Thanks for the ideas, quite helpful Smiley
More trading I'm after. Looked at Your site, but it has rather a low trade limit for me, even after verification.
