The Regency Chess Company Reviews:

I needed to make a speedy order, so I contacted The Regency Chess Company and they made sure they looked out for my name/order and got it sent off that same afternoon. When they noted an item I had ordered was out of stock they upgraded me to ensure we got the order in time. Super great service and so helpful they were on WhatsApp too - just really lovely to deal with. Thank you so much again!

We ordered a travel chess set for our Grandson's birthday present to be sent direct to him. We were kept informed of delivery progress and it arrived - as hoped - the day before his birthday. Apparently it is as good as it appeared on the website and he is absolutely thrilled with it.

Product Description

This supremely luxurious chess set combines the legendary Isle of Lewis chessmen with our beautiful Italian Briarwood chess board. The chessmen are a precise reproduction of the original Isle of Lewis chessmen. These superb British-made chess pieces are brought to you by The Regency Chess Company. They have been produced from laser scans of the original pieces that are stored and cared for by two prominent Museums. The Lewis chess pieces have become an iconic legend and remain one of the most famous and original designs of chess pieces.

It is said that the chessmen originated from Norway but remained undiscovered for hundreds of years. It wasn’t until 1831 that they were found by accident near the sea on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland. Some have argued that the figures were actually intended for a different game and plenty of discussion rages on the origins of the pieces. Despite the arguments and opinions, these pieces are now firmly accepted as being chessmen in the conventional sense. The original pieces remain in the United Kingdom and are on display for all to see. These precise reproductions give you a chance to own a piece of history and enjoy a game of chess in the presence of their majesty and splendour.

Product Reviews

"Bought as a birthday present, super quality, beautiful board, grand size and a really impressive set."

M R Merson, 17th February 2021

"Stunning! The chess set is well worth the money"

A Dubois, 28th October 2020

"The reproduction of the original Isle of Lewis pieces, are extraordinary by themselves. Each piece is beautiful mini-sculpture in itself. But when paired with the Italian Briar Chess board, it is without a doubt one of the most exquisite chess sets, I have owned, and for that matter seen available for purchase, within this price range. One thing though is that the chessboard is quite large and heavy, because of its material, superb quality, workmanship. Even if you do not use this chess set to play, it makes for an excellent display in any room. Moving the chess pieces across the board, gives you a sense of how this game may have been played centuries ago. Every happy with the purchase and the excellent customer service received from Paula at Regency Chess UK. The transaction was very easy and the item, shipped immediately and was delivered internationally in four days, with tracking."

"An beautifully crafted chess set upon an equally beautiful board. It is a true delight to play out my games on them."
