Websites / e-mail newsletters for the UK?

Hi there,
Last year I visited Paris and found loads of great information through websites lovingly put together by expats in France - e.g. www.parisinsites.com, www.secretsofparis.com, www.bparis.com & www.metropoleparis.com.
Now I’m planning a trip to the UK and my question is are there any similar resources for the UK (London in particular)??
I have tried web searches but get only hotel sites and 'tourist board' type information. I'm looking for something a little more in depth and personal.
Many thanks for any suggestions!

Firefly,
Try these for a start:

www.londontown.com
www.timeout.com (click London)

But there are a lot more and I am sure others will add their favourites.

Great suggestions - thank you!
Time Out and London Town are great for specifics, but aboutbritain.com is exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for - a bit of inspiration to help me choose what to do!
Please keep the links coming - thanks!

Hello Firefly,
The British Tourist Authority has a site geared for Americans( but could be of interest to others also) who are traveling to Britain. www.travelbritain.org

You might also want to try the forums at delphi.com. There are lots of message boards with ex-pats and just general travel advice.
