Every word I've used in this answer, for starters. *** If you mean, "exclusive to the UK, not used in other English-speaking nations", I certainly don't know of any. *** If you mean, "used in the UK but not commonly used in the US", well...there's tons. Bangers. Mash. Toad in the Hole. Starkers. Wrinklies. The Dole. Lord Mayor. Shire. Moor. Crisps. Full English Breakfast. Black pudding. White pudding. Christmas pudding. Brown sauce. Scones (apparently, the nearest thing in the U.K. to U.S. biscuits). Liverpudlian. etc.

      Thumbs up for sharing, but not precisely. The most noticeable difference between US English and UK English is its vocabulary. There are hundreds of everyday words that are different. For example, Americans call the front of a car the hood, while the British call it the bonnet. Tell an English teacher in the US about the "bonnet," and she will think you are referring to a woman's hat or a brim framing the face.
