You could start with The Perfumed Garden, Chocolate Soup For Diabetics and Rubble series which are all available as 5 or more cd comps.
They contain just about all the essential UK psych tracks you need. There will be some doubling up of course.

I suggest
'Let's Go Down and Blow Our Minds - The British Psychedelic Sounds Of 1967' Box set [3 CDs]. about £16 on amazon including P&P.

Get Me Home For Tea: Rare Psychedelic Rock From The U.K.
A bit pricey, so listen on youtube -

Re: Best UK complation albums

I would endorse the titles already suggested the 20 cd / LP Rubble series is still the definitive article in terms of compilations. Others you might want to investigate once you've gone through those are:

Circus Days (compiled by Phil Smee who did the Rubble series) Vols.1-6 (cd box set)

Electric Sound Show 5 CD box set - From the compilers of the vinyl only Incredible Sound Show Stories series. These are later 60s into early 70s stuff psych into prog psyche and very good quality

Psychedelia - 5 cd box set - Originally a 4 LP set (an extra disc was added for the CD box). A lot more British psyche and late 60s singles and re-mastered to a noticeable extent form the original CD issues more than a decade ago.

These should all be readily available on Amazon or eBay.
