Employed services of 'architect' but found the person is not an architect, can I cancel contract? (UK)

Yes, you can. In terms of the Restatement (Second) of Contracts at ยง153, your basic assumption was the understanding that that person is an architect, and he knowingly failed to make the pertinent clarification.

I am sure there is an equivalent provision under UK law. Consider this a preliminary answer (I will edit later today to provide UK law sources), since two people already voted to close your post and it is foreseeable that also others will do as well.
