Entering the UK
As long as your purchases are for personal use only, there are no restrictions.
You do not have to pay any tax or duty in the UK on goods you have bought tax paid on board or in other EU countries for your own use and transported by you (just keep your receipts).
"Own use" includes goods which are for your own consumption and gifts. You cannot bring back goods for payment, or re-sale. These would then be regarded as held for a commercial purpose.

When entering Ireland or Spain, guidelines are different. Please refer to the information provided in our onboard shops or ask our onboard shop staff for more details.
