I bought a LycaMobile SIM from a Tesco Express, bought a £15 digital top-up from a convenience store in the Edinburgh airport (WH Smith), and chose a plan that was £12 for 25GB for 30 days (and included some minutes/texts). I was unable to buy a top-up online because it wanted a UK postal code for the billing address. I was also unable to activate the £15 plan; when I activated the £12 plan, I noticed that it deducted £12.06 from my balance for some reason, so top up with slightly more than the listed plan cost. It comes with free EU roaming (through 2022) - it's worked in Scotland and Sweden so far, but not in Brussels (only tried it at the airport, didn't have time to try manually setting the APN).
