The Regency Chess Company was founded in 2008 by Julian Deverell of Bath, England. He combined superior product design and product sourcing, and exceptional photography and website design to build the UK’s most successful chess retailer. The Regency Chess Company provides a simple online shopping experience and friendly knowledgeable service - whether it be for the gift buyer or the chess enthusiast himself.
Julian travelled throughout Europe and Asia in 2007 to establish relationships with leading chess piece and chess board manufacturers. Today he is working continuously with the world’s finest chess designers to offer beautifully crafted pieces and boards.
In 2013 The Regency Chess Company expanded into North America with a base just north of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This operation is run by experienced tournament director, organizer, player, teacher and chess expert David Lawless.
