err off top of head, insurance doc that covers you abroad, drivers license.
then if you are planning on leaving it there, there's I think a whole set of other rules,but not sure on those. From this website (the DVLA is the UK licensing authority):-
"Visitors to the UK can usually use a vehicle displaying foreign numberplates for six months provided all motoring taxes are paid in the originating country. This can consist of one single or several shorter visits in any 12 month period.
The important word in that quote is "usually" - check the website for more details.
I think they assume you have insurance from your own country. You'd need to check you can get that to cover you 6 months abroad, but someone should do it.
It's looking like this could be a cheaper option for me in future, I'd get a car over there for summer months when I need it for the boat, and one here for the winter and mountains.
Good luck with it Bogi
