Europe is easy: all GSM (2G) will be either 900 or 1800 (many networks have both), and 3G (UMTS, aka WCDMA) is 2100. That's it - cover those and you're good (unless you want LTE as well, in which case the only UK coverage currently is in the 1800 band, but limited to a number of large cities and grossly overpriced - not sure what will change by time you travel. Don't know about Greece).
