All Whittard of Chelsea UK mainland deliveries are made by courier and are delivered between 9:00am and 5:00pm Monday to Friday, excluding any bank holidays.. Deliveries can sometimes be made outside of these hours.

If you are not at home between 9:00am and 5:00pm Monday to Friday, we recommend arranging delivery to your work address. If we do deliver to you at home and no one is in, our couriers will leave a card telling you about how to collect your delivery. Any unclaimed or undelivered orders will eventually make their way back to our warehouse.

Whittard of Chelsea does not recommend customers to leave instructions to our couriers for your goods to be left outside your delivery address. Should the customer wish to proceed with this option, Whittard of Chelsea will not be responsible for any loss or damage.
