Harrods and Selfridges, two of the country’s best known stores, are among the businesses that accept euros, according to About. Marks and Spencer stores also accept euros, according to the BBC. The BBC lists a variety of English towns, including the seaside towns of Bournemouth and Poole, where local small businesses have agreed to accept euros.
