If you haven't used our online shopping system before, we have a page of explanatory notes which you should read before proceeding.
Before you can begin shopping you need to select your shipping destination from the choices below; this requires cookies to be enabled. (A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by our website and only our site will be able to read that cookie. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and our site name and some digits and numbers. It allows our website to remember your shipping destination so you don't have to set it every time. Our website's shopping cart will not function without this cookie being set). If you wish to delete this cookie, press the 'Clear Cookie' button below - but this will stop the shopping cart functioning.
UK orders are generally sent first class, so will usually arrive a day or two after despatch. Airmail options take 7-14 days from despatch, depending on exactly where in the world you are. We use the Royal Mail's International Standard service (airmail) which is untracked but in our experience very reliable.
Orders to UK and EU destinations will be charged VAT at 20% on applicable items (everything except books). If you live in Europe but not in the EU, ensure that you select the correct option below (the green one) - that way you'll pay the Europe shipping rate but won't get charged VAT. Orders to the rest of the world will not have VAT applied. Prices shown on the website include VAT.
USA customers please note that you now have a separate shipping button to the rest of the world.
Please read the page on the ordering process which outlines our terms and conditions. By placing an order on this website, you agree to do so under these terms.
Tracking Your Order
Neither First Class or International Standard are tracked services. For customers that would prefer the peace of mind of tracking and a signature, we've now added an option to allow you to select a Signed For service (either First Class Signed For in the UK or International Tracked & Signed overseas). These are a little more expensive (£1.25 UK/£5.00 overseas plus VAT if applicable) - to select either of these, you need to click the button below which will add a 'Signed For Service' item into your shopping cart (if you can't see the button then you need to select your shipping destination first). You only need to add it once - but if you accidentally click it twice then you can remove the additional one in the shopping cart. Please note that you will need to do this each time you order - this option is not saved for future orders.
