Depends on how much you need. If you only need small amounts then bagged from a local GC, will be ok. Here in N London there is a place in Enfield that specialises in soil, compost bark etc they are good. If you can cope with it uncomposted try a local tree surgeon, they will be only too happy to drop a load to your home, as they have to pay to get rid of it. Just make sure you tell them you only want chipped wood, not loads of leaves , pine needles etc.
Wood chip is often given away free by tree surgeons or carpenters. I never buy it. For the past eight years or so, a local furniture maker has brought all over sacks of it for free. Workers with wood have to pay for waste disposal, so they are usually eager to give it away. If you have friends and neightbours with trees or shrubs and have chippers, they might be able to help you out.
Thank you very much for the advice .
I've bought various products from these people if you're looking for bulk - I've been pleased with what they sent.I recently bought composted bark chippings from them which were very goodhttps://www.cpa-horticulture.co.uk/bark-mulch
