If you are in the London area:
London City is the "146 hub" of the UK because of the restrictions at the airport......Aer Lingus, AirFrance (franchise), British European, Swiss (Crossair), Lufthansa (CityLine) all operate 146/ARJ's from LCY to their respective hubs.
London Gatwick is good too, but the main user BA CityFlyer (or Eurogatwick as it is now!) is moving all its 146's to MAN and BHX to go to CitiExpress and will get 737's in return (LHR will get BHX's 319's)
London Heathrow has Manx (soon to move to Gatwick, it may have done already!) and Air France (franchise).
As for the rest of the UK, as I mentioned BA CitiExpress will boost their fleet with the ex-CityFlyer 146's, there's British European around the country and Buzz operates a fleet from Stansted!

CityFlyer is a 100% owned subsidary of British Airways and has been merged into BA's shorthaul operation at Gatwick and the whole thing is now BA Eurofleet Gatwick (they were gonna call it Short Haul At Gatwick, but somehow S.H.A.G. didnt sound right! hahaha! )

British European have numerous 146-200 and -300 services from BHX and having flown to SNN with them, I was very happy (My flight(s) were G-JEBB a 146300) and also Aer Lingus have a fantastic service from BHX to DUB on a 146 (I flew onn EI-CLI) but now theres a better airline bmibaby down the road who operates 737s obveously.
Citiexpress (BA) operate 146s from the latter part of the year, SN brussels airlines serve BRU on 146s.
