Re: Pre paid nano SIM in the UK?
Buy a SIM from a phone shop (or supermarket) in London, not from the vending machines at the airport. (Airports have free WiFi if you sign up from your smartphone / laptop.)
You can get a SIM from free (sometimes a £1) and then put credit on it.
Some PAYG options require you to have credit on your SIM and then 'sign-up' (through your phone) to a calling / data plan package.
If you do it in an independent phone shop (eg, CarPhone Warehouse), they can advise the best option for your anticipated usage and setup the plan for you.
I use Vodafone PAYG Freedom Freebie: £10 for 250 minutes of calls, unlimited texts and 250Mb of data, all to be used in 30 days. Options for £15, £20, etc with higher allowances are also available. I think that the Three network is cheaper though. In central London, most service providers should give you good network coverage.
If you don't set up a PAYG plan, you could be charged per call (~25p / min) and data usage per day (~£2 per day upto 5Mb and ~£5 per 50Mb over that), which can work out to be pricey.
Have fun in London: it's a great place!
