Kenyan shilling (KES) to British pound (GBP) exchange rate chart and trend analysis based on real data sourced directly from UK currency suppliers
Our British pound to Kenyan shilling chart plots the actual Kenyan shilling buyback rates offered by our panel of UK currency providers at the end of each day, so you can see the historical performance of the Kenyan shilling against the pound and monitor fluctuations in the exchange rate over time.
This page shows the Kenyan shilling to pound exchange rate, not the Kenyan shilling buyback rate advertised in our Kenyan shilling buyback comparisons. Both rates are the same, but the buyback rate is displayed in a different format due to the way UK currency suppliers advertise their buyback rates. Learn more
This annual exchange rate summary provides a detailed breakdown of the performance of the Kenyan shilling against the British pound over the past several years so you can put today's Kenyan shilling buyback rates into context:
Exchange rates can be displayed in different ways depending on the context. There's the Kenyan shilling to pound exchange rate, and the Kenyan shilling buyback rate. The two are in fact the same; they are just displayed differently.
The Kenyan shilling to pound exchange rate corresponds to the value of one Kenyan shilling in British pounds. For example, a Kenyan shilling to pound rate of 0.0071 means one Kenyan shilling is worth 0.0071 pounds.
In contrast, the Kenyan shilling buyback rate corresponds to the amount of Kenyan shillings you'd have to exchange to get one pound. For example, a Kenyan shilling buyback rate of 140 means you'd have to exchange 140 Kenyan shillings to get one pound.
UK currency suppliers prefer to show the Kenyan shilling buyback rate instead of the Kenyan shilling to pound exchange rate, so we follow the same format in our Kenyan shilling comparisons. However, on this page, we use the Kenyan shilling to pound exchange rate since this is what the data is intended to show.
The two rates are interchangeable: to convert the Kenyan shilling buyback rate into the actual Kenyan shilling to pound rate, just divide 1 by the Kenyan shilling buyback rate, e.g.: 1 / 140 = 0.0071.
