We've had a shop in Bedminster for over 20 years. Our large Bristol store features our whole range of outdoor equipment and includes a dedicated climbing area, tent room, and footwear fitting facilities.
We are easy to find and there is free parking outside and opposite the store, plus there a small free car park close to the roundabout. We are cycle friendly, so you can bring your bike inside. There is a bus stop right outside too if you're visiting us via public transport.
All staff are active outdoor enthusiasts and have plenty of knowledge of outdoor pursuits and related equipment. We believe our store offers the best service and knowledge in Bristol with a clear focus on customer service. Many customers return year after year - even if it's just for a chat about their latest outing!

New Climbing Zone
We are delighted to reinforce our commitment to climbing in the West Country and beyond by introducing a new climbing zone to our Bristol store.
This specially reserved and redeveloped area is home to all of the kit you'll need to attack your next crag or for a trip down to the local wall. Here you'll find a variety of climbing equipment from footwear, harness, helmets, hardware and much more.
Staff in our Bristol store are keen climbers and can often be found down at the local wall - they are friendly, approachable and happy to offer you honest advice on your gear needs.
Taunton Leisure is also a proud sponsor of Undercover Rock, one of the leading climbing walls in Bristol.
We have a number of enthusiastic climbers within our stores and we're proud partners of Undercover Rock (UCR), a leading provider of climbing instruction in the South West.
Based at the Bristol Climbing Centre, Undercover Rock is a 'Regional Centre of Excellence' and offers something for everyone - from complete beginners through to top level competition climbers.
Simply show your UCR membership card in any of our three stores, and you'll receive 15% OFF the RRP of most stock lines (including all your climbing gear).
In addition to this, there will be great offers and package deals available (many of which will be exclusive to UCR members). Read more about our partnership with UCR.
