Depends where exactly you are in the UK.

All the usual advice about not looking directly at it and instead using solar filters etc.

For once cloud was kind and held off until totality (or as much as we got of it in the UK). For those not so lucky a couple of photos of what you missed.

North of Scotland, thin cloud but enough to need a solar filter. After clouds rolled in, too cloudy for solar filter but too bright to risk exposing the camera sensor to an unfiltered view. After that, it was sun, what sun?

Overexposed one as the sun should be bright! Near maximum eclipse at 11.20am
F8 ISO800 0.6 sec

Properly exposed one but no sun spots visible. 10.50am.
ISO 800 F8 1/125th sec.

Nothing professional but taken on an iPhone through a welding screen lens.

A composite showing the change in the bite out of the sun over time (and the amount of cloud in the sky). The final one shown was my last photo (11.29am) as heavy cloud then moved in from the south to cover the sun until past the end of the eclipse. Covers 10.20am to 11.29am

Nothing like the above but this is my pinhole camera effort at peak.
