CAD -> GBP

I have a Canadian CAD account, and I want to transfer 80,000 CAD from it to UK GBP cash. I live in the UK.
What's my best move? I can take 500 GBP per day / 3,000 CAD per week
via Canadian credit card. I can take 999.99 GBP per day through Western Union to GBP cash.
How is TT telegraphic transfer organised? Can I send / TT to a UK GBP bank account, then withdraw from the UK GBP account in cash?
I am considering possibilites. Advice welcome.

You need to talk to your bank and probably a UK accountant. What you are proposing ought to trigger money laundering alarms, and reports to the enforcement authorities. You need to do this in a way where you provide the documentation that proves who you are and that you obtained the money legitimately.
In my view, requiring such a large amount of money in cash is a show stopper, as there are almost no legitimate reasons for doing so.

If I transfer the 80,000 CAD to a UK bank account, rather than cash, then would that worry the money laundering authorities?
The money is "kosher" and I can prove it was obtained legitimiately. Basically I've never yet transfered such a large sum of money, and I would like information / advice as to how to do so.

It's still possible you could be asked about the source of the funds, but if you can show it was obtained legitimately then it shouldn't be a problem.
You might want to do some research into where to get the best rate of exchange when converting the CAD to GBP.
