There is quite a folk scene growing in London. The wonderful Laura Marling and Noah & The Whale have one other band in common: Mumford & Sons [If you want to try other bands from that scene: Jay Jay Pistolet or Johnny Flynn are good acts too]
M&S is a London based quartet led by Marcus Mumford, they have a couple of EPs under their belt and the first album will be out later in October on Island Records. It will be called Sigh No More.
As an appetizer they've released a first single from that forthcoming album: Little Lion Man
