Taunton Leisure Stores

We have three fantastic stores stretched across the South-West of England, in Taunton, Exeter and Bristol. All stores hold a wide range of superb outdoor gear with staff whose experience and knowledge of the outdoors have helped grow an excellent reputation which we are extremely proud of. All stores are very well-known for having some of the best footwear fitting services in the country where we take the time to measure your feet and evaluate the best fit. We are so confidant we offer a footwear fit guarantee!

Thousands of intrepid explorers, climbers, and campers travel from further breadths of the UK and abroad to our stores each year to receive the very best service and advice. Our customers have taken the gear we sell to the World's furthest reaches including the North and South Poles, the Himalayas, Patagonia, Kilimanjaro - the list goes on. We see our stores as the base camp before your adventures into the unknown, but also the fire you gather around to tell stories of adventures past.
