Take a look at phrasesinenglish.org's "N-Grams Advanced" tool:
It allows you to view 1- through 8-grams from the BNC (British National Corpus) in ascending or descending order, and provides a lots of granularity (filter by word pattern, POS etc.)
Google has a nice project called Google N-gram viewer. It contains around 1-million English words from all the books in Google Books Library. You can view the frequency graph of a word over the years and compare between frequency graph of different words.
The data is also available for download if you want to try some experiments over them. It consists upto 1-grams to 5-grams of data of Different forms of English (i.e. British, American) and some other Languages (Chinese, German, French ) too.
