International shipping: Europe

We are often asked to deliver internationally - and we are happy to do so! - but please note that Brexit, supply chain issues and the cost of fuel have all impacted shipping costs hugely. As a result, please see below for our latest international delivery costs (with signed for delivery, online tracking and proof of delivery):

**Please note that you may have further customs and tax to pay on receipt of goods.


International shipping: rest of world

Please note that shipping costs further afield are difficult to quote accurately, as they are calculated by individual parcel weight. With that in mind, the below prices assume a package weighing around 5kg (the weight of many of our chess board and pieces combined). If your item is likely to be markedly less, please rest assured we will refund you any difference. (If your item is likely to weigh a lot more, please get in touch for a bespoke quote.)

US and Canada: £59.95**

Australia and New Zealand: £59.95**

**Please note that you may have further customs and tax to pay on receipt of goods.
