Thank you for your support! Our small team are working as quickly and safely as possible to prepare and send online orders. Please expect a delay of 14 days maximum for orders to be sent out. Thanks for your patience.

Don't wait until it's too late! To ensure your gifts arrive in good time for Christmas, and to avoid disappointment, we recommend placing UK orders before 6 December. 

The RA Shop online is now open, and you can shop an edit of our collections at the RA Shops at Burlington House and Burlington Gardens, with a free ticket.

We are currently doing some behind the scenes improvement. There will be a 7-10 day delay on deliveries from 7 August. Thank you for your patience.
