UK Postage and Delivery

  • Standard UK Delivery - £4.95 (including all current catalogue items)
  • Postage for a Pound products - £1 (sent separately from our York shop)

If your basket contains a mixture of catalogue and non-catalogue items then it is possible that your postage charge will calculate as £5.95.  This covers the cost of making two deliveries.

To get "Postage for a Pound", your order can ONLY contain items from the "Postage for a Pound" section: Postage for a Pound – The Cat Gallery 

How long do parcels take to arrive?

We aim to dispatch your parcel within 1 working day of receiving your order. UK orders are dispatched by Royal Mail or by Courier for heavier parcels. 

Please provide your email address when placing your order so that we can send a confirmation email as soon as your order has been dispatched, including any tracking details for items sent by courier.  Any delivery instructions provided with your order will be passed onto the Courier.  Royal Mail will follow any agreement you have with your local Postman.

Postage is charged by weight and is automatically calculated by the website when you enter your destination. Overseas orders are sent by Royal Mail (airmail service) if they weigh less than 2kg, and by another carrier if they are heavier. 

Orders outside of the UK may be subject to import duties and taxes. These are levied when the delivery reaches its destination and you will be responsible for the payment of any such duties and taxes.
