The Joe Brown Shops (Est 1966) and The Climbers Shop (Est 1959)

With over 100 years of retail heritage our shops are incredibly proud to offer a huge choice of clothing and equipment for climbers, mountaineers, hillwalkers and trail runners. Our story was begun by pioneers back in the days when hemp ropes were all the rage. Today, our team are equally passionate about sharing their experience of the products we stock so you don’t have to experience the hard lessons they have already learned.

The Climbers Shop and Joe Brown Shops Partners with British Mountain Guides

Joe Brown Shops and The Climbers Shop are very proud to be official retail partners for the British Mountain Guides (BMG). We feel honoured to have this affiliation with respected, professional and skilled mountain professionals - essentially the best out there!

The British Mountain Guides work extensively throughout the UK, Europe and further afield in the world’s most remote and challenging mountain ranges, collectively sharing their passion for climbing, mountaineering and skiing with clients of all abilities and skill sets. With a solid base of experience and knowledge (every guide is put through a rigorous, demanding but highly rewarding training scheme) the British Mountain Guides aim to promote safety, enjoyment and good practice in climbing and mountaineering.

Working in such demanding conditions and environments, these guides require the best gear and clothing available. Here at Joe Brown and The Climbers Shop, we aim to provide not only our customers, but working mountain professionals with the best kit available. With top brands such as Mountain Equipment, Arc’teryx, Patagonia, La Sportiva, DMM, Scarpa, Rab and Grivel, we are proud to be one of the best specialist climbing and outdoor gear shops in the UK and proud to have an official retail partnership with the BMG.
