The safety of our staff, visitors and community is our top priority and so in line with advice from Public Health England the galleries are closed until further notice, however we’re pleased to announce that the Tate online shop is open as usual.

For you, our customers:

We are working hard to resume normal service while maintaining the welfare of our team, couriers and our customers. As part of this, we are providing contactless delivery, so you can stay safe at home. While the current lock-down measures mean some of our orders may take slightly longer than usual to reach you, rest assured we are doing our best to deliver as quickly and as safely as possible. We are also extending our returns policy to 45 days during this time to relieve as much of the pressure as we possibly can.

For our staff, couriers and their families:

We are following all the government health and safety executive guidelines to support our staff, working hard to fulfill your orders. Our working hours have been adjusted to allow staff to avoid rush hour commutes and give more time to rest. Following all the health advice made available, we are observing social distancing measures continuing to clean our sites frequently and thoroughly. We are offering as much support to all our colleagues at Tate and partners, and doing everything we can to accommodate those with children and care-giving responsibilities.

During the gallery closure, please e-mail us on We will do everything we can to accommodate your request, however processing these may take longer than usual as we are currently running a reduced team.

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

Returns policy for shop products

If for any reason you are not entirely happy with your order – whether you have changed your mind or we have made a mistake – then please contact our customer service team as soon as possible.

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 or pierced earrings unless they are faulty or we have made a mistake. Custom prints are exempt as they are made to order and pierced earrings are exempt for health & safety reasons.

If you would like to return your order, please try to let us know immediately and if it's within 30 days we will be happy to offer you a full refund, replacement or exchange.

Unfortunately, after 14 working days we cannot refund any delivery charges or cover the cost of returning the item.

How to return shop products

Please contact our customer service team by email at to let them know if you need to return an item. You will find a slip on the bottom of the delivery note in your parcel. Please include it in the package when you send the items back to us so that we can process your return quickly.

Please return items to us unused and in pristine condition so they can be re-sold.

If you need a refund, we will 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.
