SIM Card for Travelling Around UK

I'm from Toronto, Canada and have an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S II X that was a originally a Koodo phone (Canadian telecom company). I will be travelling around the UK from April 18th to April 29th and would like advice on which SIM Card would be best for me.

The cities I'm going to be stopping at are London, Bath, Bristol, Cardiff, Conwy (North Wales), Liverpool, and Edinburgh. I will be getting my Samsung Galaxy S II X unlocked.

I would like to be able to use my phone primarily for data (my uneducated estimate is 500MB - 1GB for the whole trip; will probably mostly be for Google Maps).

I will probably only make 5-10 texts throughout my trip.

I would like to be able to make locals calls here and there. Let's say 4 short calls in London and 1 short call in every other city. I may need to make a few 5 minute long distance calls to Canada.

Thanks for your help

Find a carphone warehouse store and ask them what the best current deal is. Their website lists store locations, they are all over.
