As an American living in London it is quite easy to get a british accent (or fake one) you can either take speech classes with a british teacher or go live in England for a while and see the accent.

Rhotic accents are strong in both the US and Scotland, but seem to have disappeared from British English and its derivatives, such as Australian and New Zealand English.
