Hey Adrian,
 
Hmm,  well it depends on your preferred payment method and the level of privacy and speed you want.
 
You’ll probably get the best privacy and fastest speed from LocalBitcoins.com – this site sets you up with people nearby who you can trade with directly. The site secures your trades with them so it’s safe. As there’s usually no verification required, this can save the usual 1 – 3 weeks it takes to verify your identity with an exchange. Also, it’s more private without the ID verification.
 
CoinMama is good if you want to pay by credit card. If you want to use SEPA and similar bank or payment system methods, then I’d probably recommend BitStamp.net – a very long running and reliable exchange which also has SegWit and batching enabled for lower withdrawal fees.
