    This http://accent.gmu.edu/browse_maps/europe… is a useful website with lots of different English accents. Just click on the flags to listen to them. You can also try BBC London as they has pages on accents where you can listen.

    Hope it helps.

    I think getting a specific type of accent is not easy but if there are lot of stand up commedians on tv who do this. I think you have to speak a lot of native British speakers, watching them closely.

    Forvo is a good site to check the pronunciation of individual words - you can choose between British English, American, Australian, Canadian etc (note that not every word has an example from each variant).
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
