Listen, Can you smell something?
For under a grand I'd pick the Audio-Technica AT-LP3 deck, it has built in pre amp, for around 200 quid, and a Marantz PM6007 receiver for around 500 quid leaving some dosh for speakers. The Elac DebutB5.2 speakers have won loads of awards and are around 250 quid.

The amp will keep you going for years, the cartridge on the AT can be swapped for something better down the line if you need it and the speakers are small but pack a nice punch.

On a slightly related note, what furniture do people have to house their turntables and LPs? I’m looking for something to replace the totality inappropriate IKEA table and cases, would prefer one unit that houses them all and possibly has room for the router and home telephone as well. Any suggestions for nice, locally made stuff?

Hifi furniture sells very cheaply on the secondhand market. As an example, I bought two Atacama Equinox AV units on Ebay. Together, they're £900 new and I paid £110.

Question re: rega P1 plus. Can I only use it with an amp/receiver that doesn't have a built in phono stage?
ie: If I get a new amp that does have a built in phono stage will my RP1plus work with it?

Does the turntable have an internal phono stage? If so, it will plug into a line input (cd-aux-tuner), just don't plug it into the phono input
