Shipping Forecast

During a storm in 1859, nearly 150 vessels were wrecked on the British coast including the Royal Charter, the sister ship of the SS Great Britain. This led to the Shipping Forecast being developed, which has protected the lives of people travelling by sea ever since.

Navigate our stylish collection of stationery and homeware below, inspired by the iconic names of shipping areas and classic maritime imagery. Our colourful flag products are based on the signal flags flown at sea which now decorate the rigging of the SS Great Britain.
