Xilinx's programmer costs around 405 dolars, so probably cost around 400 after tax and the markup by UK resellers, but if youre willing to spend some time, you'd probably be able to build one yourself fairly cheeply if your not after a high speed solution, I know my university programmed it's CPLD's via a simple parrell port adapter and some software to drive the JTAG protocal.

Though for the FPGA's I think they opted for the programmer as it supported the lower voltages used.
