Beach detecting, you will need a foreshore licence that's if it's not privately owned, other than that door tapping.

The comment by "Dash (Paul)" is correct for the bulk of the UK and the permit can be got from http://www.thecrownestate.co.uk/rural-a ... plication/ so it could be worth getting one if you think you might want to detect beaches south of the border at any time.

BUT for on the beaches Scotland it is different to England, Wales and Northern Ireland because there is a general right of access for the public to all beaches and foreshore including those owned by The Crown Estate. [Hence the reason why they do not bother to provide maps of the Crown Estate foreshore in Scotland]

Anyone wishing to detect on foreshore in Scotland should read and abide by the Scottish Outdoor Access Code to ensure they are doing so responsibly. All the details can be found here http://www.thecrownestate.co.uk/rural-a ... -scotland/

I assume, but do not know, that for detecting on inland you need the landowners permission exactly the same as in the rest of the UK so that means "knocking on doors" and asking for permission.
