Bristol Pound - the UK's largest local currency


The Bristol Pound aims to create a more resilient, sustainable and inclusive local economy. By encouraging people and businesses to buy locally, £B keeps money circulating right here, supporting local job creation.

Anyone can use paper £B. But if you live, work or study in Bristol, you can open an account on our phone app and use digital £B. There's a map on the app and an online directory to help you find participating businesses.

If you're a local business, contact us to join, so that you can accept payments and make purchases in £B. We offer networking, marketing and access to business support.

Bristol Pound is more than money. It's a way to create a community where we understand the value of things, not just the price.
