Our galleries and shops are temporarily closed in line with national lockdown restrictions.

For you, our customers:

We’re providing contactless delivery and we’ve extended our returns policy to 45 days. Our distribution centre and our courier partners are working hard to make sure that your orders are delivered safely and on time, but working under national restrictions means that delays might be expected – as always, we’re grateful for your continued patience at this time.

If you have any queries, please e-mail shop@tate.org.uk.

For our staff, couriers and their families:

We’re following all the government health and safety executive guidelines to support our staff. Following all the available health advice, we’re observing social distancing measures and continuing to clean our sites frequently and thoroughly. We’re offering support to all our colleagues and suppliers, and doing everything we can to accommodate those with children and care-giving responsibilities.

Brexit Update:

We’ve had to temporarily suspend all orders to EU countries until further notice. Unfortunately, this means that we are currently unable to send replacements for returns of existing orders from EU resident customers. Instead, if there is a problem with your order, we’ll issue a refund.

For more information, please email us at shop@tate.org.uk.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. We’re truly grateful for your ongoing support of Tate.

How to cancel your order

Shop products

To cancel your order please contact our customer service team by email at shop@tate.org.uk.

If you've ordered a custom print and need to cancel it, please contact us within 24 hours or we may have already started production. As custom prints are made to order, they are not refundable unless we have made an error.

Tickets & memberships

Tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. However, providing we have availability, we may be able to exchange some exhibition tickets at our discretion, if you’re able to return the unwanted tickets to us before the date and time slot that they are valid for. A £1 exchange fee is charged per ticket. We are not able to exchange tickets which are valid for past dates or time slots.

Please contact hello@tate.org.uk with ticket exchange queries, or regarding cancelling a Membership.

Please also see our FAQs regarding Tickets or Membership.

Returns policy for shop products

If for any reason you’re not entirely happy with your order – whether you have changed your mind or decided you just don’t like it – we’ll happily offer you a refund or exchange within 45 days of purchase.

Under the Distance Selling Regulations, if you buy merchandise online or by phone, your consumer rights entitle you to a full refund if you request one in writing within 14 working days of receiving your items. This includes any delivery charge but does not include the cost of returning the item. 

Unfortunately we cannot offer a refund on custom prints, pierced earrings or face coverings unless they are faulty or we have made a mistake. Custom prints are exempt as they are made to order and pierced earrings and face coverings are exempt for health & safety reasons.

If there’s a problem with your item (if we’ve made a mistake, or if your order arrives damaged) please try to let us know immediately by emailing shop@tate.org.uk, and we’ll arrange a replacement or refund for you as soon as possible.

*Please note that we’ve had to temporarily suspend all shipments to EU countries until further notice. Unfortunately, this means that we are currently unable to send replacements for returns of existing orders from EU resident customers. Instead, if there is a problem with your order, please contact shop@tate.org.uk and we’ll issue a refund.*

How to return shop products

If you’d like to return all or part of your order, you’ll find a slip on the bottom of the delivery note in your parcel. Please include this in the package, and send the items back to us at:

Tate Shop Returns

Unit 8, 240 Freshwater Road,

Chadwell Heath,


Essex RM8 1RX

Once we’ve received the item with the return slip, we’ll process your refund, replacement or exchange as quickly as possible. Please make sure you return the item in pristine condition, in its original packaging.

If you’re owed a refund, we’ll issue this using the same payment details that were used to purchase the items. We aim to process all returns within 1-2 weeks but the refund could take up to an additional 10 working days to show in your account, so please bear with us.
