yeah dude try the Laney LV-200. That has 1 12" celestion speaker, 3 channels (1 clean and 2 OD) with scoop switches and best of all it's "Tube enabled" Or u can go for the Laney LV-300 which is the same but it has 2x12" and i think its JUST over 200 pounds that one (the lv-300) .. It's not a full tube amp just partially (half the circuit i think) but it uses the most popular tube(s) in the market. It sure as hell sounds like a fulll tube amp when u crank it up. Great for its price. Laney produce the best amps cheap. Plus, they are british. :"].

Always difficult to answer when put as a general question. What are your preferences, country, trash metal, something else?

Well if it doesn't matter it's really easy. Just get any tube amp with a 12" speaker that cost less than 200 GBP. Just walk into any musicstore with those criterias and you'll have at least a dozen models to choose from.

be careful. they make a lot of amps now that have a tube preamp only. they are cheaper, and not really the same as a full tube amp, or valve as you would say. I expect the one mentioned above is of that type.

Just be patient, and look around. But be sure you know what you are getting. I would check out a model on internet before buying. Such as harmony-central.com. I am not so impressed with the reviews on ultimate-guitar.com for the most part. You may find out something undesirable about the amp that was not made obvious by the manufacturer.
