immigration to the uk is based on nationality, residency and reason for the visit.
The Home Office have a newish website http://www.ukvisas.gov.uk/en/

Under the EU rules regarding free movement of persons & services you are entitled to live and work in all the EU countries EXCEPT the one your wife is a citizen of - ie Poland - regardless of your actual citizenship

But I think the question is whether a Schengen-area visa will work for the U.K., and to that the answer is no, it won't. As pointed out above, the U.K. home office makes its own separate determination. You will exit the Schengen area and have to re-enter when you come back.

Schengen and EU are NOT the same thing.

OP is married to a citizen of an EU country, therefore he has the same freedom of movement as his wife EXCEPT in Poland where he needs permission to live there.

However your wife will have to apply for an EEA Family Permit in order to be granted those rights

Well, you have the right to travel to these countries and to travel between them. You do not have the right to move there unless you have a residence permit.

As others have said, a Schengen visa does not entitle you to enter the UK. You would need a separate visa in this case.

Out of curiosity, what is your citizenship?

Also note that whilst travel between and within any of these countries is permitted, most Schengen visaholders are only allowed to stay in the Schengen Zone for three months out of every six months.

Not most, but all. No Schengen visa allows for stay of over 90 days in 180 days period. In cases where longer stay is required, national long-term visa or residence permit has to be acquired.
