comment Any first-hand information on American “chip and no PIN” cards in the U.K.?
Yeah, the card has a chip but there's no PIN and when I used it in the UK, they asked for a signature. I didn't have any major problems with it.

comment Visiting the U.K. from U.S. — how do I get British money?
Chase British Airways VISA now offers U.S. customers a chip and pin card. We might have discovered other banks doing so had the question stayed open. I found I can use my ATM card for terms that are significantly better than the ones mentioned in a year-old response (1% vs 3%). Also, discovered BofA partially waives fees if you use Barclays. It would have been great to find out about other details like that.

comment Visiting the U.K. from U.S. — how do I get British money?
Sure, similar question. However, that question is from almost a year ago as are most of the answers and it's quite likely the relevant information is different now. Also, I am asking specifically about the U.K., whereas the referenced question was more general in scope, starting with Italy as an example. I think my question is different enough.

Thanks a lot for the information. I think I will try the hostel option for at least part of the trip.
