super easy atleast with my bank. i dont see any reason it wouldnt be easy with your bank
you only need swift code and account number. both you should have gotten when you made the account. if not just call the bank and get them. remember that thai banks dont use IBAN so dont try to find it.
and remember to send the money in pounds(in your case) since the british bank would take a lot more in exchange fees than kasikorn will
i get charged 6 euros by my finnish bank and kasikorn takes 0.25% + some flat fee from 200-500baht(i think closer to 200).
like i said if you send around 2000 euros total fees are under 1% and it only takes 2 business days (sometimes 3 when you run bad) to get the money
