Assuming it's the Regency period you're interested in (you didn't specify), a good place to start is Heyer's first Regency, _Regency Buck_. It's loaded with details, and is one of my personal favorites.
_Faro's Daughter_ is also a favorite, but it's not Regency-- its setting is the mid-1790s. On the GH Companion (www.heyerlist.org) there is a link somewhere to a page which gives the chronology of the books, i.e., in what year each novel is set. (On the GH Mailing List we discuss these things with relish!)
Other Regencies set in London include _The Grand Sophy_, _Arabella_, and _False Colours_. I think _The Corinthian_ is also set there, and _The Unknown Ajax_, and maybe _Sprig Muslin_ and _Charity Girl_. Other novels have significant sections take place in London, even if the primary action is elsewhere, for example, _A Civil Contract_.
