Hailing from the UK, you are eligible for 30 days entry "without visa", when arriving by air, or 15 days if arriving overland. Depending on your itinerary, you may not need a Thai visa at all.

But then there's your airlines. Many carriers won't allow you to board without a visa covering the period.

My friend here in Vegas flies into BKK 4 times a year and just accepts the free 30 day entry waiver. The Imm. guys never ask for his return ticket. They can, but they don't.

Thailand has extended their free tourist visa offer until March 2011. Contact your Thai Embassy and ask them about a free tourist visa. I would discuss with them what is the best option for your trip.

But, airlines can be the buggers. Check with your carrier.
