In the UK (ENG, WAL, SCO), prostitution is legal, but in many cases it isn't. It is illegal to; own or run a brothel, solicit sexual services in public, kerb crawl*, or be a pimp.
There is at least one legally set up 'red light district' in the UK, it's in Leeds (Holbeck area specifically), where the local police force have declared that they will not prosecute prostitutes who are soliciting on the streets, nor will they prosecute kerb crawling. Brothels & Pimping is still illegal within the zone. They also can only work 7PM to 7AM. The scheme has so far been successful, at least in the eyes of the police. (I'm not entirely sure what makes it 'succesful' to them).
More information on the Leeds scheme can be found here

* defined as driving slowly looking for prostitutes
By your statement, UK have taken into consideration some of my points, but not all. Mainly they do not prosecute prostitutes if they act within a certain frame. Still, AFAIK, prostitution is not considered an acceptable job or a proper career, even in countries that have legalized prostitution of various reasons. The Swedish argument that legalized prostitution can act as a safe haven for trafficked girls to get help to get out of the clutch of traffickers are a beginning, and if more countries did the same trafficking would be increasingly difficult, but as long as the market is criminalized or demoralized in one way or another, there will still be room for trafficking. My suggestions will hopefully help removing the old stigma against prostitutions, knock down the trafficking by making available legal and organized prostitutions etc.
Another topic I have seen discussed to reduce prostitutions is use of sex-bots, but there will always be some willing to pay more for "the real thing", so I guess as long as human uses recreational sex, both within and outside relationships, there will always be a demand for prostitutions
