American Express in the UK

I had an American Express (Amex) card 6 or 7 years ago and I found it quite hard to make use of it, at least in the UK.
I also noted at the time that even online some websites would not accept them and airlines would charge me extra for using an Amex.
Those of you with American Express cards, do you have any issues when using them in the UK?
Where are you able to use them?
Do the standard shops like Tesco / Asda / Wilko allow you to use them? What about online? (eg. Amazon)
I am basically considering getting an Amex, but I am unsure as to whether I would be able to actually make use of it in the same way as you use a Visa or Mastercard.
