Please wait until you receive your 'order ready to collect email’. Our collection service is free.


We have a 14-day return policy, which means you have 14 days after receiving your item to request a return.

To be eligible for a return, your item must be in the same condition that you received it, unworn or unused, with tags, and in its original packaging. You will also need the receipt or proof of purchase.

Please inspect your order upon reception and contact us immediately if the item is defective, damaged or if you receive the wrong item so that we can evaluate the issue and make it right.

For hygiene reasons, certain items are not eligible for a return, e.g., earrings or beauty products unless they are faulty. Unfortunately, we cannot accept returns on sale items or gift cards.

To start a return, you can contact us at museumshop@rcsed.ac.uk.
Our team will give you individual advice on returning your item(s) and claiming your refund. We will notify you once we have received and inspected your return, and let you know if the refund was approved or not. If approved, you will be automatically refunded on your original payment method.

Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too.
