Radon data: Indicative Atlas of Radon in Great Britain — WMS

UK radon map

Every building contains radon but the levels are usually low. The chances of a higher level depend on the type of ground. Public Health England and the British Geological Survey have published a map showing where high levels are more likely.

The darker the colour the greater the chance of a higher level. The chance is less than one home in a hundred in the white areas and greater than one in three in the darkest areas.
