How much do they cost?

I know they will vary but on average what are we talking?

I had a loft conversion done 2 years ago and it was approximately £18K.

1 and a half rooms (half because the sloping roof means the height isn't legally a room - I use it as my office, so perfect for my purposes, but not everyone would want it - it would have been cheaper not to have it, but I wanted it), proper staircase that's better than the original one downstairs, built in shelves and wardrobe, and nice archetraving and storage.

You can get a dormer conversion (ie with the sloping rooves on both sides, but room not extended out) for cheaper - from about £14K.

I'm in Kent.

We had a quote of £15K for a (smallish) conservatory. But I know someone who had theirs done of a simillar size for about £10 so it's worths shopping around and bargaining.
Our quote for a loft conversion was about £45K so we didn't bother.

A friend of mine paid £30K for her loft conversion last year (West London).

We have people starting our large conservatory this week and its £13K and we are in Herts. We were quoted huge price differences in conservatories, cheapest is the one we are going for, most expensive £22k. Quite happy to go for the cheapest as a friend of mine has just had one installed by the same company and its fine and she is really pleased with it.

I would also love a loft conversion, think they make lovely rooms but we have a bit of an issue with where to put another staircase.
