Hello, guys. Was wondering if you could help me identifying these spiders. First two were found next to my house in the back garden. The last one inside my flat, behind the fridge (not the cleanest place, hehe).

The first two are funnel weavers in the genus Tegenaria, such as the giant house spider - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giant_house_spider
The third one is a cobweb spider in the genus Steatoda, likely Steatoda grossa - http://natureconservationlewisham.co.uk/2013/02/05/steatoda-grossa-spider-found-at-devonshire-road-nature-reserve/
Neither are dangerous to humans.
