I am struggling to figure out weather the particle is の or で connecting the location (UK) to the verb (started)

<place>で<thing>が始まりました。

In this case you might see the verb for "born" used (生まれる).

As long as your nouns are followed by the correct particles, the overall meaning of the sentence is relatively unchanged.
