The Argentine Peso has had a turbulent history and has suffered from inflation and devaluations. Since the late 20th century, the Argentine peso has experienced a very high rate of devaluation, reaching as much as 25% in 2017. The exchange rate for the United States dollar hovered around 3-1 from 2002 to 2008, climbing to 6-1 between 2009 and 2013. By January 2018, the rate had risen to 20-1.
Most bureau de change do not carry Argentine Pesos so your choice is limited to the high street banks that may offer poor exchange rates and the online specialists who offer the best Argentine Peso exchange rates.

You don't need a visa to enter Argentina but you do need a passport that is valid for the duration of your trip. British passport holders are usually granted 90 days for their stay in Argentina; if you want to stay longer than this or are travelling for any purpose other than tourism you'll need to contact the Argentine Embassy in London.
You should also be prepared to show evidence of return or onward travel before departing for Argentina, for example your return plane ticket home. Airlines have been known on occasion to refuse boarding to passengers travelling to Argentina without proof of return travel.
