The World Service for Central Europe is on 648, yes.  It's a
five-tower in-line array (unusual for the UK) in Ordfordness, Suffolk.
The site is shared with the Dutch station Radio Nationaal on 1296
(which has an even-more-unusual six-tower array).  Historically, if my
old WRTHes are to be believed, the World Service used both
transmitters: 648 during the day and 1296 at night.  (It seems not
impossible that the same towers might have been used for both.)
