You can get it in morrisons and tesco, it's usually by the milk on the top shelf where you'd find sour cream and creme fraiche.

If you dont have any you can use this... For every 1 cup of whole milk add 1 tbsp of lemon juice or 1 tbsp of vinegar. Leave it for a minute then use. It'll look curdled.

I never have buttermilk on hand so I do what LisaPeps said. It has always worked for me.
