In line with the latest government guidelines, to ensure your safety and wellbeing as well as our staff, suppliers and their families, and to make your Christmas shopping easier, we’ve made some changes.

For you, our customers:

We’re extending our returns policy over the festive shopping period. Purchases made in November and December can be returned for a full refund until the 31st of January 2021.

We’re continuing to providing contactless delivery. Some of our delivery timeframes have changed, but we’re working hard to make sure that your orders are delivered safely and on time. Make sure to check our last order dates for guaranteed Christmas delivery.

For our staff, couriers and their families:

We’re following all the government health and safety executive guidelines to support our staff, who are working hard to fulfil your orders. Working hours have been adjusted so that they can avoid rush hour commutes and give them more time to rest. 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.

If you have any queries, please e-mail

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

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 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, and we’ll arrange a replacement or refund for you as soon as possible.

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.
