If you have received a promotional code via our shop or one of our email newsletters, this code can be used during checkout when buying from our online shop only unless otherwise stated. The promotional code should be added during checkout in the box clearly marked ‘promo code’. Our system will automatically deduct the appropriate amount from your order. One offer/code may be redeemed per transaction. Discount codes are not valid on Gift Experiences, Guided Tour tickets, or postage costs.
If you have received a voucher, leaflet, card or any other form of marketing material that includes a promotional code, this can be redeemed during checkout when buying online as above or can be redeemed in one of our stores by handing the voucher to a member of staff at the till when paying for your items. The voucher will be retained as it may only be used once.
Unless otherwise stated all promotional codes apply to shop merchandise only. Promotional codes may not be used to buy Exhibition & Tour admission tickets, theatre tickets, event tickets or in our Café.

Delivery of large/heavy items overseas
The delivery costs on large or heavy items may be revised, as export mailing costs cannot be accurately determined until the point of dispatch. If additional payment is required you will be contacted to discuss if you wish to proceed with the order and if appropriate, to take the payment.
Pricing and Availability
If one of our products is out of stock or unavailable we will endeavour to contact you to arrange a refund or alternative delivery date.
The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 provide the right to customers to cancel their order at any time prior to delivery and up to fourteen (14) working days after receiving the goods, starting on the day after you receive the goods.
If you wish to cancel your order during the fourteen (14) day period please notify us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling us on 0207 902 1588 (Lines are open 10am to 5pm Monday to Friday).
If you have already received your goods, you must return the goods at your own cost, to the address below, within fourteen (14) working days of the cancellation date.
Refunds will be made within fourteen (14) days of the cancellation date, to the card which you originally used for the purchase.
Nothing in these conditions affects your statutory rights as a consumer.
Our usual cancellation policy does not apply to Print on Demand prints made to order. If you decide to cancel your Print on Demand print for any reason, it is unlikely we could sell it again at full price. Therefore, a 20% cancellation fee of the order price will apply.
If you are unhappy with your purchase, or it is damaged in transit, please notify us within fourteen (14) working days of receiving your goods, and return it to us at the address below, in its original condition, unused, unopened (with any seals and shrink-wrap intact) and accompanied by the original delivery note and we will issue you a full refund or replace it.
Items delivered to an overseas address must be returned within 30 days of the cancellation date, unused, unopened (with any seals and shrink-wrap intact) and accompanied by the original delivery note.
Goods must be returned at your own cost and we would recommend that you return the goods by recorded delivery. We can only accept the return, and refund opened items if they are faulty.
Faulty returns should be sent to the following address along with a letter stating the reason for the return:
