UK Chat has been in the business of providing free online chat rooms since 1997, making us one of the originals. We like to keep our rooms fun, bringing people from the UK (and all over the world) together, with rooms focused on a broad assortment of general, work-safe topics, inviting everyone to join in.
In 2018, UK Chat came under new management, along with the deployment of a new chat system designed to use standard web browser features in order to allow even more people to connect and join the rooms, regardless of what type of device the user wishes to use. Now users with anything from desktops to smartphones can find a home here, all connecting to the same chat server and rooms, creating a more lively and fast-paced social environment.
Our rooms are all meant to be inclusive for everyone, so long as proper respect is shown. Chat rooms such as Lobby, Young At Heart, Cafe, and Trivia are meant for anyone at any time. Rooms like Scotland, Northern Ireland, England, and Wales are meant for people in those areas to find each other, but are also welcoming to tourists! The 20s and 30s and 40s and 50s rooms are for their respective age groups primarily, but if you want to bring older or younger friends in, I'm sure no one will mind. Gay Chat, Lesbian Chat, and LGBT are meant to serve our gay, lesbian, and broader LGBTQIA+ users, respectively, but so long as everyone is respected, those who may be curious or questioning their own identities are welcome to join.
In addition to our official, permanent rooms, every user has the ability to create their own chat room as well. This can be a great way to have a temporary discussion space for specific topics, or just a place for your particular group of friends to hang out. These user-created rooms are not monitored by moderators, so join at your own risk.
