As for where the cheapest place is to get one I can't help, but as for what visa it is, well it will all depend on what your purpose for going to India is because of. If you plan on going as a tourist, the option I had to use when applying in Australia was a 6 month multiple entry visa. So I would assume it would be the same one that you would need to apply for given that you plan on being a tourist for less than 6 months.

Yeah you do need one and its best to get it before you go....find out where the embassy is in your country and they will guide you through the process. Its pretty simple, Im doing mine right now....my travel partner decided to do his by post but Im going to go into the embassy here in London as its close to me and it will be done in 24 hours!

Since you are a british citizen, you need a visa BEFORE you arrive in India.

It is simple and you can get a visa in Indian embassy(High commissioner's office)in London. Normally they give you a 6months multiple entry visa for tourists.Just contact them on the phone and you can get all details.
