    hey there a lot of previous posts on this topic. It all depends on how much you shop, drink etc.. it ranges from 50-100 euros per day depending on where you eat, how much u drink etc etc. if u eat at expensive places drink lots and shop till u drop you will spend well in excess of this.

    I would suggest bringing some Pounds with you before you leave and some euros – at least enough to get you started until you can get to an ATM machine.

    If you’re paying a flat fee to exchange before you go then I would get enough pounds to cover your pre-tour time and at least 100 euros, otherwise you’re fee is costing you too much.
