Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, some online orders may possibly experience despatch and delivery delays.
To safeguard the health of staff, our warehouse is operating with additional processes and social distancing safeguards in place. Our website and warehouse are both much busier than normal so order processing and delivery timeframes may differ due to staff capacity and Royal Mail’s ability to deliver.

Like most websites, our delivery prices are based on averages. If you are ordering a large number of titles and we find that there is a significant difference between the delivery charge in your order to the actual cost to Foyles we will reduce the cost to our actual cost where we can; alternatively, we will contact you if for some reason there is a much higher cost. We will absorb any reasonable increases without further charge.
We reserve the right to change our delivery charges without notice and may vary our promotional offers.
Courier is a tracked service and may require a signature upon receipt.
