I think I would go for

I think I would go for Scrophularia grandiflora, the flowers of Scrophularia peregrina are a darker more crimson colour.

I was thinking that ...

... the flowers looked more like grandiflora, and the leaves more like peregrina, which made it a bit of a toss up.

You could add Scrophularia grandiflora as an ID, and see what everyone else thinks.

Knew it wasn't right for S. auriculata but not familiar with the species mentioned - are S. grandiflora and S. peregrina cultivated species in Britain?
Edit - just had a quick Google and it does look like S. grandiflora from the images shown.

grandiflora is in the RHS Plant Finder ...

... (but not currently stocked by any listed nursery); peregrina isn't, at least under than name.
