When visiting Europe would going to the UK be considered leaving the Schengen zone?

Would it count towards my 90 out of 180 days in any way?

    Yes. Days spent in the UK, Ireland, or any other country that is not in the Schengen area do not count toward the 90 days.

    The UK is outside the Schengen zone

    This is for US citizens:

    As a U.S. citizen, how long can I stay in the Schengen area without a visa?

    With a valid U.S. passport, you can stay up to 90 days for tourism or business during any 180-day period. Do not overstay! You must wait an additional 90 days before applying to re-enter the Schengen area.11 Feb 2019

    The clock stops, but it doesn't reset. It used to be that you could do 90 days in the Schengen zone, leave for a short time, and go back in for another 90 days. But they closed that loophole. You now have to be out of the Schengen zone for 90 consecutive days before you can go back.

    Yes, the UK is not a part of the Schengen zone. The clock stops on your 90 days when you go there.
