Palm centre have 180cm tall (60cm trunk) ones for £99
They have bigger ones too, but a much bigger price tag.

Not sure tbh mine was about £20 from homebase with a 30cm trunk, but it was in a sale and still fairly small.

I'll take one tomorrow, I'll estimate at 45cm from memory, but will measure and photograph it tomorrow in my garage, really great condition, and I chose a day for delivery by emailing after ordering.

First pic it Touches front part of garage sloping ceiling at 195cm...but its wrapped up so not true height. More like 160cm...see here: http://imgur.com/p8G8x9D

Trunk part is 50cm. Wow. Kind of guessed it was around there:
