Why aren’t there many tall buildings in the UK?

With the exception of London, outside the towns and cities look flat. Wouldn’t having much taller buildings make more sense with the UK almost running of space to hold everyone in houses. The taller the building the more you can fit in, like Hong Kong and Singapore

    Because for YEARS after WW II, the skyscrapers built in the UK were Brutalist monstrosities.  However, Liverpool and Glasgow do have a lot of skyscrapers, and some of the ones in the Pool were built in the 1920s and are quite nice looking.

    High rise buildings are ugly. I live in the country and would HATE to live in a city.

    The UK doesn't have the population density of Hong Kong and Singapore. We need tall buildings in central London because there's a shortage of office space. We don't need them elsewhere and low rise buildings are more efficient.
