Via Navy Matters, an early (late 1999) design concept:

Three pictures from November 1999 showing the early design concepts for the Type 45.  Particularly note:
 1)  The flush-deck VLS Sylver missile silo
 2) The original Sampson radar design.
 3) Harpoon SSM launcher tubes in a superstructure break amidships
 4) Phalanx CIWS mount on the hanger roof

Britain’s Type 45 destroyers – which have been plagued by engine problems – are “as noisy as hell”, a former director of operational capability for the Ministry of Defence (MoD) Rear Admiral Chris Parry told The Sunday Times
Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.

Extended TV series featuring HMS Duncan.  Likely to be removed due to copyright.

Royal Navy still using the Phalanx system for new ships?
Well I guess it is cheaper then the Goalkeeper or Bushmaster.

Frankly, current Phalanx 1B with optimized barrel group is probably better than Goalkeeper (and definitely easier to fit).

Bushmaster isn't even in the same class -- it's akin to the DS30 mounts, which I believe are on the Type 45.
