Can't really use an amp in my situation, and love being able to practice in silence and have a variety of effects etc.

Any recommendations for a multi FX pedal for under £250? Any help appreciated

God yes.

I really really dislike the majority of the Zoom stuff. The L6 is a quality unit and I miss the flexibility of my HD300 for home recording.

You would go Line 6 over Zoom?

For me, I've had great experiences with both companies. I really like the Zoom MS-50G; great idea that is long overdue. I think, as far as I know, the only weakness with Zoom FX is the distortions - I could be wrong though.

For that MS-50G though, it wouldn't be perfect for multi-fx unless you can really program it in an easy to use format. However, Zoom has some other pedals/units that work quite nicely for the money.

As far as Zoom VS Line 6? I don't really think there would be a winner. They're both pretty nice, to me, that is. Just MY opinion.

Here's a video of that MS-50G:

Edit: Now that I think about it, my old Zoom 505 had some pretty sweet distortions on it. It also had an acoustic simulator that was incredible.

OP said they want to practice in silence so a POD would be ideal whereas separate pedals would not suit the bill at all.
It's an opinion. It's subjective. And I'm right, anyway.
I was in your situation, and although I did not try all the alternatives, I could not be happier with my Zoom G3, I was pushed into getting it after an update was released to allow for 6 effects to be used simultaneously instead of the previous 3.
To be truthful, The distortions probably aren't that great compared to a boutique pedal, but for me, I only ever use light overdrive on an amp on the edge of breakup.
The reverbs and delays are amazing though if you're into ambient/post rock stuff, The amp models seem pretty good to me when using headphones. From marshalls, to fenders to mesas It has everything.
I Just remember looking at the other alternatives and Was frustrated by only being allowed 1 effect from each category, which could mean i couldn't have a compressor and overdrive.

Saying that, I wish I could have afforded one of those Pod HDs, people say the effects are amazing on those things.
