Learning English, not American

I'm an English speaker that likes to play with accents. Recently, I've been wanting to pick up an English accent - British English, I suppose it's called? - but I'm aware of a completely different vocabulary is used. Are there any links you kind and wonderful people may be aware of to learn a few of those differences? Or of other general and notably different dialects? It seems silly that I work on learning other languages, but not knowing enough of my language's other dialects.

EDIT:Thanks so much for your information! It proves to be a very interesting project. And, yes, I do understand that saying "British English" was completely off, but I wanted to be sure that the question was understood. Thanks again :)
