    How are you planning to mount it?

    Plamsa's with built in tuners require a normal coax connection to receive freeview, but you may need to upgrade your aerial.

    Bit hard as you don't really give much in the way of requirements. However, reading between the lines it sound like you want

    HD Ready
    Sky+ Compatible for now (i.e. RGB SCART)
    Speakers (as you don't have a sound system)
    Terrestial tuner (as you mentioned an aerial)

    There are a number that will meet these. The current favourite at the top end of your budget is the Hitachi 7200.

    This is just under £2K including a pedestal stand (wall mount would be an extra £90 or so).

    The Panasonic PV500 is also aclaimed but you would be looking at £2.2K for wall mount or pedestal.

    Their is also a Samsung that is getting a lot of people excited which can be had for around £1.5K but there still isn't a lot of info about it.

    Cheers,

    Nigel
