To check if a website allows web scraping or not you can use status_code as follows:

import requests

from bs4 import BeautifulSoup 

r=requests.get(" ENTER URL OF YOUR CHOICE")

r.status_code

The output to this should be 200. Anything other than 200 means that the website your trying to scrape either does not allow web scraping or allows partially.
