It is very easy to be gluten-free in the UK as they are a nation who are aware. However, they have different standards than we do and they allow wheat starch in their baked goods. That is not allowed in the US and many people have gotten sick from the wheat starch so I always avoid carbs when in Britain. Their allowed number is up to 200 ppm and here in the US many companies shoot for under 20 ppm....big difference. I have always been able to eat well and stay healthy when there and I've been many times. You are going to love it! Where are you going as far as cities are concerned? I may be able to suggest some good sites to see.

There is also a new Whole Foods Market in the Kensington section of London, near to Kensington Palace, so you may be able to pick up some snacks and food there.

I have been to Ireland a few times and gluten free food is easy to come by. In restaurants everybody knows what is gluten free. It is true that in Europe they use wheat starch CODEX grade (less than 200 ppm of gluten) and it does not bother me.

In Galway, one if not the oldest pub, King's Head has a gluten free sandwich menu. They will do any sandwich with gluten free bread.

You can also go into any TESCO supermarket and find tons of gluten free stuff.

most of the products are clearly labeled.

Never been to Scotland.

London is also easy to figure out. Not as readily available gluten free food as Ireland but most Indian places have great food that is naturally made without gluten so it is only an issue of making sure there is no cross-contamination.

You are gonna have a fabulous time! Love the UK!!

I was there pre-gluten-free, so I can't offer food tips, but everything shuts down on the holidays, so do ALL your food shopping ahead of time.
