You should check before you leave home what can and cannot be brought into the UK and what you might need to declare. Such information is obtainable from British Embassies and from here.
If you are arriving in the UK from a country outside the European Union, you must declare any cash that equals the value of €10,000 (equivalent to £8,990) or more to customs officer. Cash not only means currency notes and coins but also banker’s drafts and cheques of any kind, including travellers’ cheques. You will find the relevant forms to fill out at ports and airports.
