Rackspace UK's cloud offering is pretty much a VPS with a nice API - it works well and is cheap.

Brightbox.com also do good options for UK based VMs

Same here. I have an $8/mo prgmr.com VPS and a $10/mo. Rackspace cloud instance. Both running Ubuntu LTS with similar options, but the Rackspace box has more disk and is generally more responsive.

Given the "I'm gonna break something" feeling I get when using the Xen console on prgmr coupled with my desire to kill and rebuild VMs regularly I'll probably just stick with Rackspace in the future.
