UK orders are delivered within 3–6 working days
We will make every effort to dispatch goods within two working days, and hope to achieve delivery to UK addresses within seven days of receipt of your order, provided the goods are in stock. However, this may vary in peak periods such as Christmas and during seasonal sale events.

Europe and Rest of the World deliveries are sent by Royal Mail and can normally be expected to arrive within 7 days. However we ask that you allow 14 days from dispatch before contacting customer services.
