As you may know, British travelers and expats are blocked from connecting to services on Netflix, BBC iPlayer, 4oD, ITV on Demand and so on. These UK websites prevent visitors outside the UK from viewing British content. However, VPN services with servers in the UK (usually London) allow you to bypass location-based IP blocking and access British websites securely from anywhere in the world.
Below are the best UK VPN services that allow you to access UK websites. They have servers located in England, and I’ve tested their services:
Private Internet Access
Private Internet Access is a VPN service that is highly regarded by privacy advocates. The company has several servers in the UK. They remain our top choice for a privacy-oriented VPN service, and they received a PC Magazine Editor’s Choice Award for VPN services. The service costs $6.95 per month, or $40 per year.

ExpressVPN is a provider with a great reputation for customer support, and a set of VPN apps for mobile users. Many people like their 30-day money back offer. They are slightly more expressive than other VPNs, but worth it if you want reliability. The monthly rate is $12.95.
