UK is pretty lucky, although there have been reports of increased bites from false widow spiders, but for the most part UK spiders mandibles are just not big enough.

I guess if you look for them, you will find them. Then you probably deserve to get bitten for disturbing them.
As for the UK. I like our spiders. There was probably a time when I was younger I used to be a little scared of them but now I play with them. They are my friends, I am also teaching my Daughter (2 years old) how to handle them. I like the mouse spiders, they are fast little buggers that live indoors and have a furry grey mouselike abdomen.
