It seems ticks are pretty much everywhere now. I know there have been cases of people picking them up in London parks.
A few notes on comments upthread.
Long trousers, sleeves ,gloves etc won't keep them out,
they will just get longer to reach your skin.
The long grass thing is misleading,
grass is scarce round here,
they thrive in bushes, undergrowth, lower trees.
You get them climbing ,
not much grass there.
Frost ,lower temprature don't kill them,
you go out for a walk mid winter to enjoy the new snow,
the sun is out,
so are the little zombies away from the ground active as ever.
