Yes,you can - but you can also use ATM,s ashore which will probably give you a slightly better exchange rate.

This is a difficult one because one doesn't know how much one will need. I can only speak for Norway where we went to Flaam, Stavanger and Oslo and we used euros the whole time with no problem. Just for coffees, newspapers and small souvenirs.

If you get the money before you go the chances are you will over estimate your requirements and so lose out when you change it back to sterling!!
