Where to find real English language in UK?
The basic answer is everywhere, but there are many regional differences.

There are many varieties of English today. No single variety is any more 'real' or 'native' than any other. They all evolved in some way or other from the dialects spoken in the British Isles in the sixteenth century.
To me, this is like looking at a French poodle and a dachshund and saying "where do I find the real dog?"
I guess we'd point to the wolf. The difference is that while we still have wolves, we don't have pre-Shakespearean English being spoken anywhere.
I actually doubt that Russian is uniform. People in Siberia speak exactly the same as people near the Finnish border? Are you sure?
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
RP (Received Pronunciation) may be what you're looking for; it's a form of English that is meat not to show any strong regional forms. However, it's not located anywhere, but there are speakers who use it in every region. You could try somewhere like Oxford, as Oxford English is a term used for the standard English you seem to be looking for.
