They get withdrawn over a period of time as they get banked by shops, etc. General public is also encouraged to change them as it gets closer to deadline.

Even after the deadline, although shops and high st banks won't change them or accept them, you can take them to the Bank of England no matter how old they are.

Yup. I had to do this with a not insignificant amount of money after they withdrew the old 50 notes from circulation.

Was worried I was going to get investigated for money laundering or something. Was sweating like irk at a diversity workshop whilst I was paying it in.

You're down in London enough so you'll be okay getting rid of your white five pound notes that you've probably still got hidden under your mattress.

Should have kept hold and then sold to banknote dealers at a later date, especially ones in decent condition.......would get more than face value the longer you kept em.

Ask nofun how much an old white fiver is worth nowadays.
