Generally, no. Land in the UK is usually privately owned, and it is not possible to wild camp without obtaining prior approval. Doing so without approval is a breach of the law.
As wild camping (free camping) laws can vary in the UK, it pays to check in advance to find out the rules and regulations for the area you’re planning on traveling to. In England and Wales, it is illegal without prior approval, but in Scotland, for example, the laws can be much more relaxed.
Campsites are widely available in the UK, however, and are quite affordable, starting at around £12 per night. Many national parks also allow you to camp overnight. Details can be found here: https://www.nationalparks.uk/visiting/outdoor-activities/camping.
