Prohibited & Restricted Items

What can't you take to the UK?

The UK has very strict regulations about which items are prohibited or restricted to take with you in to the UK. It would be wise not to try to take any of these items along with you, for when you are caught you may be liable to criminal charges or deportation.

The following items are prohibited or restricted, although some may be imported with a special licence:

If you’re caught trying to smuggle any goods that aren’t duty and tax free, customs may confiscate the goods, and if you hide them in your car, they can confiscate that as well! If you attempt to import prohibited items you may be liable to criminal charges or deportation.
