When you have found a product that you wish to buy, just click on ‘Add to basket’ to add it to your shopping bag. The quantity of products that you have selected will be displayed in the cart at the top right of the screen.

Once you have finished shopping, click ‘checkout’ in the cart icon to complete your purchase. Once you have successfully placed an order you will be sent an email confirming the details of your order. Your order represents an offer by you to purchase goods from us. Please check the confirmation email and notify us immediately of any errors on museum@stapt.org.uk. A follow-up email will then be sent once the goods have been dispatched to you, and it is only at this point in time that we accept your offer, are bound to fulfil it and a contract is formed. If an item you have requested is temporarily out of stock it will not be included in your order, you will not be charged for it, but we will notify you by email as soon as it becomes available.


We are currently only delivering to the UK. For international orders, please contact museum@stapt.org.uk with a note of where you are and what you wish to order. We will get back in touch with you within 5 working days to advise on postage costs.

The charge for post and packing for all orders sent within the UK is based on a combination of parcel weight, dimensions and value (for insurance purposes).

We aim to dispatch all items within 3 working days of accepting your order, but UK customers should allow up to 7 days for purchases to arrive. Please note that delivery estimates are not guaranteed. You will be notified by email once your goods have been dispatched.


All purchases (except books, which are VAT exempt) within the UK are currently subject to a VAT charge of 20%. The prices on our site are inclusive of VAT. Overseas customers may find their orders are subject to import duties and taxes, which may be levied once a delivery reaches its destination country. We have no control over additional customs charges. These charges are to be paid by the customer.

Product Information

All prices are quoted in pounds sterling and are inclusive of UK Value Added Tax. If the price quoted on the website is incorrect and the true price is lower than that quoted we will charge you the lower price. If the true cost is higher than the quoted price we will either inform you of the true cost and await your confirmation of your order at the higher price or inform you that we cannot accept your order and let you know the reasons for such cancellation.

All sizes, weights and capacities of the goods given on the site are approximate, but we individually weigh each item before putting it on the site to provide a fair and precise shipping cost estimate.

We have made every effort to reproduce colours as accurately as possible on the site, but please be aware that the actual colours you see on the screen may differ to those of your ordered products. If this is in any way a disappointment when you receive your items, please notify us as soon as possible and we will do all we can to remedy the situation.
