THE UK'S FINEST CHESS SETS STORE
Welcome to Official Staunton, home to the finest quality sets and boards. Buying your Official Staunton heirloom here means you can rest assured that you will receive a top-quality product. We are honoured to count Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and celebrities such as Take That, among our many customers.
When shopping for a chess set it's important to look out for the true location of the store you choose to buy from. We're based in the UK, just like other companies such as Regency Chess and Chess Baron. Some companies such as Kaoori Chess claim to be UK based, but in fact they're actually in Slovenia and only have a virtual mailbox in London. For a safe and easy shopping experience, we recommend purchasing from a reputable UK supplier - this ensures a hassle free delivery, and should you need it, returns process.
