I think at train stations, or at airports is where it's the most expensive.

Not sure if you know but in England and Wales (not sure about Scotland - different laws) if eating anywhere you can ask for tap water - and as a customer it must be provided to you free of charge. If they try to say the tap water isn't fit for consumption they are obliged to provide "potable" water (fit and safe for human consumption) without any charge.

The area I'm in the tap water tastes better than most bottled.

Edit: I had failed to mention that the restaurant needed to be licensed for the sale of alcohol for it to COMPULSARY to supply free water. Thanks to Johnny for the correction.

davidstockport This is not so.

Only licensed premises in England and Wales are required by law to provide free potable water.

Restaurants and cafes etc. that don't serve alcohol are under no obligation to serve free tap water.

Johnny Thanks for the informatiom I failed to mention that the restaurant needed to be licensed for the sale of alcohol It was from the licensing laws that I'd remembered that information from some years ago. I remember at the time I wondered what "potable" meant - I'd never heard it before.

I don’t buy bottled water any more, got a reusable bottle and fill that up saves me spending money and constantly using single use plastic bottles

The only time ive ever bought water is within a meal deal from boots at Heathrow, so i guess it was about £3 but came with a free sandwich, crisps and a bar of chocolate 😀

I don't tend to out long enough to need a drink - not since the lockdown anyway - and wouldn't pay more than £2.00 for 12 x 500ml to drink at home. I keep one by the bed in case I am thirsty in the night and replace the bottles from time to time but usually just refill them from the tap! 🐞

Concerts , cinemas and restaurants all charge well over the odds for water ... really winds me up 😤 Think the worst we had was at the O2, took the kids to see Marvels and they don’t allow you to take food or drink in so on a hot day no choice but to buy a £4 bottle of water 😱

I find airports usually charge over the odds for bottled water. I think I saw small bottles for 3 euros the last time I went through Paris, although that was a while ago mind you, they were charging 7 euros for a sandwich, or almost 10 if you got a sandwich and drink combo...I’d rather go without!

There’s so much waste involved with buying/selling single use plastic water bottles, as a nation we the consumers and the businesses need to change our ways and use reusable/refillable bottles. I think it’s atrocious that concerts and venues charge over the odds for water, look at the recent festivals like Glastonbury and Shambala that banned single use bottles and had refill stations around the site. There’s was far less waste which was hugely beneficial to the environment, not to mention our pockets x

I get my water from wells, so no need to actually buy it.

I can totally taste differences between bottled water that costs 17/18p to the ones that are 50p.
