I don't really know about any of the details, but it's basically a 6-year course, as many of the good schools I've gone to (Imperial, UCL, Oxbridge, Queen Mary's) all apparently have compulsory BSc (where you take out a year to do some research on something related to medicine), and an Honours degree for Oxbridge.

It is five years at most UK medical schools. A small number (University College London, Imperial College London, Edinburgh) include a compulsory intercalated degree year, so their courses are six years. A similar number (Cambridge, Oxford, St Andrews) consist of two separate degrees: three years of medical science followed by three years of clinical medicine, so these are also six years. At Southampton and Nottingham you do an additional bachelor of medical science degree within the five years and may choose to do an additional year to gain an intercalated master's degree. At all the others you have the option to take an additional year to complete an intercalated degree but many or most students will just do the five years.

Note that at present you also have to complete the first of the two foundation training years after qualifying to gain full registration with the General Medical Council. You have to complete the second foundation year if you want to go on to a specialist training programme in the UK.

5 or 6 years as above.

Tuition fees are the standard £9250 per year for the first 4 years (funded by student loans), paid by NHS after that. That's assuming you are a UK resident, or EU resident applying this year. For internationals, the fees over the 5 years are ~£140k-£500k, plus living costs.

The main relevant subjects are biology and chemistry.

Look on the medicine wiki here for more info.
