Welcome to the BGS Shop

Due to the current lockdown situation, the majority of our Online Shop services have been closed.

In light of UK Government guidance concerning the Coronavirus (Covid-19) the BGS Geology Shops at Keyworth, London and Edinburgh are closed and many GeoReports are temporarily unavailable due to the limitations associated with our report writers needing to work from home.

We hope to resume services as soon as possible.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but will continue to monitor emails at enquiries@bgs.ac.uk if you have any questions we can help with.
