Shanghai only has 24 and 144 hours transit without visa now. You will qualify for 144 hours only if your return to London does not stop in Hong Kong or any other city in China.

Thank you Rob, my return flight is direct to London from Shanghai. Just one other point do I need to get the immigration stamp in Seoul as I plan only to transfer in this city or can just transfer without passing customs?

You need to inform the airlines that you want to use the free transit in Shanghai when you board the plane in Hong Kong, and then you can apply for the 144 hr twov at Shanghai immigration counter within the airport.

Where did Seoul suddenly come into this? There have been instances on this site before of people getting wrong advice because they don't post full and correct details of their itinerary.
