I am going to the UK in a couple of weeks to see my family and wondered if I need an Antigen test or a PCR test and where can I go to have one?

Antigen is still acceptable. Pcr is recommended but not mandatory ...

Antigen  test is fine...I use Isla Plana Pharmacy.....but for up to date information use the government website as things can change so quickly.

I am not sure where you got you're information from  but I can assure you at the time of my reply to Jane29 my information was and still is correct.

My information came from the British Government website and also from our Spanish Travel Health App...I checked them both out for up to date information before providing a answer.
