“If all the smokers in Britain stopped smoking cigarettes and started smoking e cigarettes we would save 5 million deaths in people who are alive today. It’s a massive potential public health prize.”

Professor John Britton – Professor of Epidemiology, Director of the UK Centre for Tobacco Control Studies, leader of the tobacco advisory group for the Royal College of Physicians.

Welcome to Vape Location, a new website for a new generation of e cigarettes and vape users in the UK. We aim to cater for the growing band of people making the move from conventional cigarettes to ecigs and vaping.

This website is a trusted guide to:

  1. Choosing the best ecig
  2. Finding a good place to buy one
  3. Finding good places to enjoy them in

We created this website because – as recent graduates of e cigarettes – we thought many existing British ecig websites did a disservice to users, presenting a bewildering array of often conflicting information that is often badly and unprofessionally presented, and some being ill-disguised link farms that aim to direct people to unsuitable websites and products.

This website puts users first, and will not try to sell you anything at all. Instead we want to guide and advise you, and our first piece of advice is to find your nearest bricks-and-mortar ecig store.

Why? Well when we first started we relied on websites and ecommerce to buy ecigs, and spent a lot of money on devices that frankly didn’t work. If you go to a real store, you will get a chance to try a variety of devices which deliver that cigarette experience you crave:

  • Great levels of vapour. Let’s face it, we love inhaling a good volume of ‘smoke’ in, holding it, and breathing it out. Many ecigs don’t do this – we’ll guide you to the ones that do.
  • A great throat hit. This you get from real cigarettes, but many ecigs simply don’t deliver this. We’ll guide you to devices that supply this every time.
  • Always available. We’ll show you how to ensure you are always equipped and ensure that even when your resolve is weakened by alcohol on a night out, you still don’t steal a Marlboro Light from your mate.

Vape Location was launched in 2015 by former cigarette smokers, who are all very glad to leave the world of tobacco behind. Once we found the ecig that works for us, we have never smoked again. We think ecigs are amazing, and frankly we were really into smoking, and if we can stop, so can you.

The primary goal of Vape Location is to help people who are currently smoking tobacco to use ecigs instead. There are currently 9 million smokers in the UK, and approximately 2 million ecig users. We sincerely hope these numbers will be reversed over the next decade. We found when starting out in ecigs that it was a busy, complicated world, full of scrappy looking websites that promised a lot but didn’t always deliver. We want to guide you in finding the best ecig for you, and once you’ve found it, find the best places where you can enjoy them, not get funny looks, and not get told off by a school prefect (and let’s face it, we never liked that).

Indeed, the fact that it isn’t clear where you can and can’t use ecigs is another reason we set this website up.

We hope you like it, and please don’t ever smoke a cigarette ever again.

We firmly believe that any beginner to the world of ecigs and vaping should get down to their nearest ecig shop and get advice on where to start. Most ecig websites will try and flog you something, but we strongly suggest that you don’t start online, but in a real ecig store.

If the store is any good, they will be able to give useful advice and help you find your ‘brand.’ The world of cigarettes is relatively easy: everyone knows their favourite brand. The world of ecigs and vaping is bewildering. There is a huge range of devices, batteries, ‘tanks’ (the part of an ecig that contains the vaping liquid), liquids, nicotine strengths, flavours and all the rest.

The data on the site has wherever possible been verified on the websites of the locations concerned. While we have made every attempt to ensure the data is accurate, there are several hundred locations listed and a number open and close down every day, the people who run them go off sick, and so on. So, especially if you are travelling a distance, contact them before setting off on any journey – most locations have a phone number listed.
We also have verified wherever possible where locations allow ecigs and vaping. But please note that locations change hands and change their rules, so please be respectful of locations’ wishes in this regard: remember, although using ecigs and vaping is not ‘smoking’ as UK law defines it, all establishments have the right to enforce their own rules on this subject as in any other, and unfortunately many locations have banned their use. But many haven’t, and this site is going to help you find them.

Please note that this website is not for anyone under 18, and not for anyone who currently doesn’t smoke or use ecigs.
