I have PADI Advanced Open Water certifcation and learned and have only dives in Lanzarote (where i live). Thinking of moving to the UK in December and want to continue my didving as i only learned and started this year but assume diving over there is very different? Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks

Yes - diving is different in the UK - one of the principal differences (as you might have guessed) is that the water is much cooler - so dry suit diving is very common.

When you move across it might be worth contacting your local dive centre and doing the PADI dry suit diver speciality course, as part of your acclimatisation.
