As somebody that lives in London...
Airbnb is probably the lowest cost option to stay for a week, there
are people advertising rooms for under £20 per night
Places that are worthwhile to see historic timepieces
http://www.rmg.co.uk/ has H1,H2, H3 & H4 (I think only H1 is on
display at the moment) and of course you can stand on the Greenwich
meridian, be there before 13:00 and you can see the ball go down the
pole, which might be the first time "signal".they also have a 5071a
that was used by NPL (the UK equiv of NIST).
http://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk has another Harrison clock.
