Bristol Pound - more than money

Welcome!

Launched in 2012, the Bristol Pound (£B) is the UK’s largest local currency. It aims to create a more resilient and sustainable independent business sector in Bristol and, in turn, a fairer and more inclusive local economy. It does this by keeping the money spent in Bristol Pounds in Bristol, adding to a local circular economy instead of leaking away to distant head offices, supply chains and shareholders.

The £B comes in both paper and electronic versions, and offers a phone app with a map to help people discover and support Bristol’s independent businesses.
