If you can, dont buy perspex, buy lexan.
Perspex and Lexan are both trademarks
Lexan is polycarbonate, and Perspex is polyacrylate. Polycarbonate is more shatter resistant to polyacylate, though gernerally more expensive.
Depends what you are using it for and how much you need.
There is a place in Birkenhead that sells Lexan, though they only sell it in huge sheets
