    I've bought from WH Smith or Hobbycraft before.

    You can order online or by phone from the latter's website

    Online.. Bureau Direct have a great range.

    Physical Shops - larger Rymans sometimes have decent stuff or you need an independent Art Supplies shop.

    You don't neccessarily need ink. You can get gouache is most art shops and thin it down. More choice of colours as well.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    Cass Art, The London Graphic Center and Cowling and Wilcox each sell calligraphy inks in various colours and will deliver around the UK. They also accept student discount cards if you have student ID.
