International shipping is back!
Our systems have been updated and we will happily accept orders from all over the world. Please place your order on our website as normal, and once you have selected your country the 20% VAT will be removed (books and magazines are not VATable). As every order is different we will weigh your order and get back to you with shipping options, before we confirm your payment. You are liable to taxes and duty charged by Customs in your country, which we cannot give guidance on.
We welcome orders using our website or by phone, but please note that we are not open to personal visitors or for collections at the moment. Due to the volume of orders being received it may take us a few days longer than normal to despatch your order, and due to problems with the pandemic Royal Mail are experiencing some delays which are beyond our control. If you would like to pay extra for a Next Day delivery please let us know.
