Where can I buy dry ice from locally? Answered

I live in London England, and was wondering where I would be able to buy dry ice, on a consumer level. Eg, maybe a kg worth. If anyone knows the name of a supplier, it would be most helpful.

Companies that sell liquid carbon dioxide to bars and restaurants often offer the solid form as a sideline.

It does have a liquid form, but only at higher pressures. At atmospheric pressure, liquid CO2 would instantly vaporize.

I buy my dry ice from a local grocery store....they usually have it stored in back.....or in "walmart's" case right by the front door.

I don'T know about your area, but look in the yellow pages for dry ice. Around here I get "Praxair" and "BOC Gasses"
