Some of the most spectacular are the most expensive. I have seen Globemaster at 9 quid a bulb.
I prefer to have lots and Purple Rain and Purple sensation are reasonable to buy in packs of 50. (15 to 20 quid for 50) That way you can put them through the border in between other perennials.
I also like Allium Christophii, it flowers slightly later, big heads.
All are easy to grow if you get the biggest bulbs you can get, and plant deep, around six inches.
