Order Queries

Please allow 10 days before contacting us to chase up your order.


All our products are normally available for immediate despatch.

We endeavour to meet all our order requests promptly and efficiently but cannot be held responsible or offer compensation for any disappointment experienced if we fail to meet our designated delivery time. If, however, any delay is due to availability we will undertake to keep you informed.


Goods are usually despatched within 3 working days of receipt of your order, often sooner. In the UK the books are usually sent by courier or, if less than 3 books, by Royal Mail second class post (taking approximately 3 days) and for overseas orders the books are sent airmail. Please allow 7 days for delivery in the UK, 14 days for Eire and Europe and up to 21 days for the USA.

Please note if you wish to order books in time for Christmas, the last day for second class post is usually around 5 working days before Christmas. Therefore, if you wish to order books after that time or at short notice at any other time of the year, please

contact us via info@wigmorebooks.com and we try to help if we can and arrange for first class post or courier delivery for a small additional charge.

Returns policy

At Wigmore Books we pride ourselves on the quality of our service, and always endeavour to meet the high standards we feel our customers deserve. We pack the books you order with care so that they arrive in pristine condition.
If for whatever reason a book needs to be returned, we offer a 'no quibble' returns policy as long as goods are returned in the same condition as they were received, in a saleable condition and in their original packing within 14 days of receipt.
Please let us know the reason for return on an accompanying letter. You will be given a choice of receiving a replacement book, or a refund. A refund of the delivery charge will be given in the instance of incorrect, damaged or faulty books, being sent. In this instance we will also ensure that the recipient is fully reimbursed for the postage costs incurred in returning the item.
