BGS Shop update during Covid-19

In light of UK Government guidance concerning the Coronavirus (Covid-19) the BGS Geology Shops in Edinburgh and Keyworth are temporarily closed. A number of our Customer Services Team have returned to the Keyworth site on a limited basis, which has enabled the re-opening of our online shop, although many GeoReports are still temporarily unavailable due to the limitations associated with our report writers needing to work from home.

The London Geology shop is now open Monday to Friday 10am – 17:45pm, along with the rest of the Natural History Museum. Access to the museum will be by booked time slots, for more information visit

Please note; there may be some delays to services due to limited staff occupancy on site. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but will continue to monitor emails at if you have any questions we can help with.

Please note; anyone travelling to visit the Geology Shops is advised to phone first, to check opening times on the day.
