Orders & Delivery Update

We are currently accepting orders for UK delivery only. If you wish to place an order from outside the UK, please contact us at onlineshop@ashmus.ox.ac.uk to register your query and we will strive to respond within 72 hours.

While we endeavour to get your parcel to you as quickly as possible, you may experience delays through your local postal service. This occurs particularly during peak postal service times, from early October to end of December each year. Your patience and continued support are greatly appreciated during this peak postal season.

You will receive email notification when your order has been dispatched. Please allow up to 5-7 days for order dispatch before contacting us. 

Royal Mail strikes are ongoing, so please be aware that this is causing delays to deliveries.
