It's not kept in a chiller with the firm stuff but in the section where dried beans and pulses usually are or sometimes the chinese cooking section. The main ones sold in supermarkets are blue dragon.
Or try

Failing all of that try Holland and Barret, some of them sell tofu. It depends on how big the shop is.

Other than health food shops, the only place I've seen silken tofu is in Sainsburys, at a very reasonable 99p per pack

Sainsbury's and some Tesco stores. Do you have a Chinese/Japanese supermarket near you? if not Wing yip stores do mail order for many foods and sauces.

Our local independent wholefood shop can order silken tofu for me, even if they're out of stock that week.

http://www.japancentre.com/ - sell many types of tofu and delivered to your door.

They also sell freeze dried Tofu which was new to me.
