Jane Green has written a few books that are set there (not sure if she is British) and are pretty good.

there is another book that I've read but now the title is escaping me that was good, I think it was Undomestic Goddess by Sophia Kinsella that was pretty good.

Fourplay by Jane Moore was really cute!  I also recommend PS I Love You by Cecelia Ahern (this is more Irish...)

Actually if you like British Chick Lit, Red Dress Ink books are mostly written by British authors and I would definitely classify them as Chick Lit.  If you do a keyword search for Red Dress Ink it will give you a ton. I have a few of them on my bookshelf if you want to see what I'm talking about. Hope this helps.

I second Jane Greene. I loved Jemima J and look forward to reading more by her. I was very pleasantly suprised by Ralph's Party, a book by Lisa Jewell. I got it with some other books and really loved it. I love british chic lit.

Penny Culliford's Theodora series is hilarious. it consists of Theodora's Diary, Theodora's Wedding and Theodora's Baby.

*note they are slightly Christian chick lit, but not at all conversative or preachy.

I also enjoy Jane Green.  I recently read The Other Woman and enjoyed it.

You might want to check out Playing Away by Adele Parks.  I read it a while ago and enjoyed it.

Marian Keyes is a great author  but she is from Ireland but her books go back and forth from England to Ireland.  A great writer.
