What happens when you travel with a large amount of cash?

I'm going on vacation, and for unimportant reasons, want to bring about $25,000 cash with me. I'll likely return with a similarly large amount of cash. I know that means I'd have to report it at the borders, but what happens after I declare it? Paperwork? Interrogation? Worse?
The only viable alternative (that I know of) involves setting up a foreign account, and then wiring the money to it, and I don't really feel like setting up a foreign account from the United States.
(If it matters, the origin is the United States, and the destination is the UK)
