Places that allow vaping e cigarette uk

 

British law defines smoking as smoking tobacco or anything which contains tobacco, or smoking any other substance, and smoking includes being in possession of lit tobacco or of anything lit which contains tobacco, or being in possession of any other lit substance in a form in which it could be smoked. Ecigs and vapes don’t have tobacco and are not lit, they aren’t covered by the smoking ban in the UK in 2007. So, using ecigs is in theory allowed anywhere.
The reality is different. One of the purposes of this website is to not only guide people to choosing their ideal ecig, finding a good place to buy them, but also to show people where they can enjoy them without fear of being harassed or thrown out. Enter your town or postcode above to find an e cigarette uk friendly location near you. We have not yet seen any ‘NO ECIG/VAPE SIGNS’ but they will doubtless come, which will at lead to more clarity on the issue. 

Even when they are allowed, we suggest you consider our ecig etiquette guide. [Hyperlink to etiquette page].
