Online jigsaws using our collections

Take a look at some of our collections in more detail by exploring them as online jigsaw puzzles, thanks to Jigsaw Explorer.

Choose a puzzle, then select the difficulty (how many pieces you would like to play with) using the ‘waffle’ button. Depending on how challenging you want to make your puzzle, you can display edge pieces only by clicking the button in the middle of the top of the jigsaw screen.

Happy puzzling!
