It is Saxifraga stolonifera (strawberry begonia or strawberry saxifrage), or one of its cultivars.
It is not native to the UK; it comes from central and eastern Asia (Himalayas to Japan).
It was introduced to British gardens in 1771, and can be found naturalised on shady walls and in churchyards in lowlands. (I paraphrase from the Biological Records Centre - http://www.brc.ac.uk/plantatlas/index.php?q=node/3992.)
