We now only ship to the United Kingdom

Covid-19 is still causing long delays in shipping to destinations outside the UK and Brexit has added new complexities and additional local charges payable by the customer within the EU. In addition fuel costs are fluctuating greatly, resulting in increased and unstable shipping costs. Because of these issues we will reluctantly no longer be able to process orders for delivery outside of the UK. Although we will keep this under review it is not anticipated to change until the middle of 2022. For customers overseas with existing orders, we will contact you once your order is ready to be shipped to organise delivery to the address on your order.
