Not sure, when this was “launched”, but Google maps are now available for UK. Interested in knowing where I live, then click away! Unfortunately, the Satellite view is not available right now, you can only look at it at the country level which does not help.
There is loads of other cool functionality like integration with the local feature of google (build on top of yell.com), e.g. not only can you look at maps, but also say if you are interested in knowing all the Indian restaurant in the region – how sweet is that?
