The currency in Turkey is Turkish lira. People may accept euros, but they will take a percentage, so you pay for two conversions.

Take a debit card and get lira out of ATMs.

Best to bring UK cash with you and change to TL when you get to Turkey - any bank or PTT (Post Office) will give you a good rate of exchange and you will get far better value for your money that way.

the euro is used the most in this region of turkey. everything in the shops are marked up in euros. if u buy anything in turkish lira the shop keepers have to get out a calculator to convert it because they are so used to deaing with the euro.

it seems to be much more easier to exchange to euros but will i get more or less for my money if i choose to use euro instead of lira.

You will be paying more if you pay in Euro - that's why they mark things in Euros - but TL you will be getting a much better value for your money -
