Cotswold Outdoor London - Leyden St

St Clements House, Leyden St, London E1 7LL, UK – 020 7655 4660

Nice shop where you can find lots of stuff for the outdoors. The shop is a bit hidden in a block that's not a main street but just a few minutes away from Liverpool Street Station or Aldgate. If you also like cycling, you may as well take advantage of your visit to the area with the 2 cycling shops on the same block.

Best range of outdoor gear close to the City. Reasonable prices. Discounts available to employees of some local firms, worth showing your ID card if you work nearby.

Cotswold Outdoor London - Islington

Good advice on choosing some new boots, the assistant was knowledgeable and didn't rush the fitting process.

Far and away the best branch of Cotswold outdoor, best staff, best location. Could only improve if stock was a bit more upmarket.

Really good quality and reasonable priced clothing, general camping and walking gear. I visited the shop in Victoria in 1998. I still have the back pack, shoes and trousers. All in good order. Visited today, same owner and bought some more trousers. Very helpful and easy location.

Really great surplus store. Was a pleasure to rummage through great piles of authentic military stuff. Very reasonable prices. Got a great old gas mask bag for around town. Loads of proper stuff! 👍
