Ellis Brigham was born in 1933, the brainchild of Frederick Ellis Brigham, who set up business making cycling shoes and walking boots in a tiny 'two up, two down' building on the outskirts of Manchester.

After the war, as mountain walking and climbing became more and more popular, the shop began to sell ex-WD climbing equipment and Brigham's boots with their special nailing patterns became very sought after.

Fast forward almost 80 years and Ellis Brigham now has 24 shops across the UK and a leading website, making it the UK's premier retailer for ski hardware, mountaineering equipment and outdoor clothing.

I visited Ellis Brigham a couple weeks ago a few days before I went on the GR20 trek in Corsica. Having completed the trek I found the advice from the store was spot on. A store member, Gopal helped me source all the essential gear to be fully prepared without including unnecessary kit which would have weighed down my bag. Would thoroughly recommended this store!

Great selection for mountaineering and really helpful staff. Only high quality kit is sold here and prices match what is available elsewhere and most websites too.

I went in to Ellis Brigham Covent Garden with my boyfriend at the weekend to start preparing for our round the world trip. We were feeling a little bit unsure where to start so lucky for us, Gopal was there to give us his expert advise! He spoke from experience of his own travels and he was so passionate about what he does! He helped pick the best rucksacks and pretty much everything else we'd need for our trip, showed us how everything fitted, as well as giving us little tips on places to go and see while on our trip :) He gave honest opinions for what would be best for our trip and didn't try and up sell at any point. His knowledge is so impressive and SO helpful. We left feeling like we could leave for our trip tomorrow! Over all it was a great experience and would recommend Ellis Brigham to anyone!

Great service. One of the employees, Gopal, kindly assisted me in choosing and fitting a backpack for my trip. Everyone there is extremely helpful and all the equipment is very high quality.

Super helpful staff on a relatively busy Saturday lunchtime. We were greeted on our way in and helped when ever we had a question. Staff retrieved additional product from the stock room and helped with decision making. I guess we were lucky as there was no queue at the till and the transaction was swift and with a smile. Yes, we could have shopped online but I wanted to feel the products and try them for size. A perfect experience all round.

So like everyone is saying on here - Gopal is such a helpful, not pushy, knowledgeable dude. Came in just to do some looking, super helpful with everything, boots, tents, sleeping bags. Ended up getting backpack that he adjusted to fit perfectly. Definitely coming back. Total legend.

An excellent store with everything you could need for outdoor adventures. Friendly and knowledgeable staff who were able to answer all my questions. I spent far more than I interested to but realised quality ain't cheap and when it's cold and wet you really need quality.
