http://www.google.co.uk/maps - including Street View which sometimes has more recent pictures than you see on the map (check the dates), especially when a new road is constructed over an old one. Useful for working out new junctions.
http://www.bing.co.uk/maps - also includes OS maps for some zoom levels.
http://www.openstreetmap.com - possibly more up-to-date, but don't rely on it.
Ordnance Survey OpenData - Comprehensive map useful for determining road types.
City of London Interactive Streetworks map - gives access to OS UK-wide detailed mapping showing building names and house numbers. Very useful for checking the location of user-added places. Opens focussed on City of London showing current and planned streetworks but can be panned and zoomed to other locations.

New Roads and Junctions
When mapping new roads or junction layouts, the big online map sites are often months or years behind. These resources can help you figure out what's what:
http://roads.highways.gov.uk/ (Highways Agency road projects - other sites for Scotland and Wales)
http://www.sabre-roads.org.uk/forum/ (Sabre forum - often has threads about specific projects)
http://www.google.co.uk/maps (Streetview sometimes has more recent pictures than you see on the map, especially when a new road is constructed an old one. Useful for working out new junctions)
- England: https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/map-search can zoom in far enough to see house numbers!
- TRO Library - National archive of TROs, search by local authority, then filter list.
