Find out when you need to order by if you want to give one of our books as a Christmas present this year.
If you're taking things down to the wire, here are our final order dates for Christmas 2020 delivery.
All our deliveries are via Royal Mail, so we're taking their lead on what they say are the last posting dates for Christmas delivery. Please make sure your order is placed by 2pm on the date shown:
UK delivery - last posting dates
|Friday 18 December||2nd Class|
|Monday 21 December||1st Class|
|Tuesday 22 December||24-hour|
Please note: While Royal Mail has not updated its last posting dates, it has warned of delays in the postal system so, if in doubt about an urgent delivery, please use a Next Day shipping option.
International delivery - last posting dates
|Friday 4 December||Australia, New Zealand|
|Wednesday 9 December||Africa, Asia, Caribbean, Central and
South America, Far and Middle East
|Thursday 10 December||Canada, Cyprus, Malta|
|Friday 11 December||Greece, Eastern Europe
(except Czech Republic, Poland and
Slovakia) and Turkey
|Saturday 12 December||Czech Republic, Finland,
Italy, Poland, Sweden, USA
|Wednesday 16 December||Austria, Denmark, Germany, Iceland,
Ireland, Netherlands, Norway,
Portugal, Slovakia, Spain,

Again, we're taking our lead from Royal Mail, which:
1. Has acknowledged current delays in the postal system, but has not indicated this will have any impact on pre-Christmas delivery.
2. Has no control over any delays in overseas postal systems.
So the message is to get your order in sooner rather than later please.
