Choosing 27" Tyres

I want to get some slick or as near to slick tyres as i can for my touring bike with as little rolling resistance as possible

The bike has 27 x 1 1/4 tyres and they're fairly hard to come by in much variety.. and cheaply

Whats more, I live in England so I seem to have even less choice

I've been looking at the Conti ultra sport tyres


Hutchinson V3 Kevlar's

but I cant seem to find much info on them... does anyone have any ideas or advice on either of the tyres or any other options

Thanks Ed

I used the 27" Panaracer Pasela tires (tour guard version on back) for many years (commuting) before I got a flat. They are pretty light and fast too. I found them at my LBS but you can order them through the mail from Harris cycles:
