If the iPhone that you bought is unlocked and you bought it from Apple, then yes it should work with any sim card from the UK.
How can you buy a phone though and not know whether it is unlocked or sim free? Sim free is not the same as unlocked however and if you have a sim free phone, it will lock to the first sim card that you put in it. If the phone is fully unlocked, then it won't.
You need to contact the person/place where you bought this phone from and ask whether it is unlocked or not. However, if you want to use this phone in the UK, then I would suggest that you buy an iPhone in the UK instead.

Thanks for the info,
The phone was from an apple retailer, however they didn't speak English very well, he did say the phone was "unlocked" so will chance it, thanks for the help!!
