Ask for advice? Please, what shall I do with my money? Well they will ask you: what do you WANT to do with it... how can a stranger tell you what you want?
correct costing me well over 15k for my uni time, an thats just me!
This thread is akin to asking 'what should I have in my sandwich?' How do we know...
put it into www.icesave.co.uk and let the interest pile up?
if thats the case i will save it along with the children's money for uni
they only got £5 k each for education

Did your uncle have any strong feelings towards any charities? If so how about giving a percentage towards that and then spending the rest on something your family (and perhaps your aunt?) can enjoy? A family holiday perhaps, something along those lines.
Its never nice recieving an inheritance, regardless of the amount, as anyone with even the smallest bit of humilty will feel "a person had to die for me to recieve this."
I know id try and do something with at least some of it that he might have done himself (i.e. charity or doing something specific that would have appealed to him.)
Alternatively, buy a car
Spend it. I am sure your Uncle would rather you enjoyed his money than kept it hidden away when it sounds like you are already very financially secure.
Blow it on a nice car, a once in a lifetime holiday or taking up a new Sport.

Another vote for the Westfield!
Send your kids to a private school.
His profile says 38 year old taxi driver
Well-paid taxi driver. :/
£45K a year does seem a tad high yes!
Bank it until you find something you want.
What's the point in squandering it on something stupid. Think about it, it's a lot of money to have as luxury. You can buy all the rounds down the pub, you can buy the most expensive thing on the menu etc etc (for like the next 10 years I mean)
