About Shipping Restrictions

Additional delivery restrictions may apply due to the nature of some products. These products might be restricted for delivery, both within the UK and to other countries and regions.

When you shop at Amazon, information at checkout or on the product detail page will let you know whether an item can be delivered to you. To determine your location we'll use your default delivery address when you're signed in to your account; otherwise, we'll use your IP address.
