Carry on camping…


At this time of year, camping really comes into its own. Whether you’re a regular camper, an occasional camper or are going camping as part of visiting a festival or other event, there’s something special about sleeping under the stars and being close to the elements.

Whatever the reason or duration of your camping trip, you’ll no doubt find that you have a lengthy list of items to pack!

Whether you’re starting from scratch, topping up your existing camping gear or replacing items that have seen better days, here are some of the best places to look for all things camping related.

The basics…

Although one of the basics of camping, tents are anything but basic these days! Tents can vary greatly in both quality and price – from the cheap and cheerful to the enduring investments. From small pop up tents to full sized family tents with multiple rooms and zones, along with everything in between, head to Go Outdoors for a full selection, including some great tent bundles containing all the basics. As a camping and outdoors specialist, Go Outdoors also stocks all the essential tools you’ll need to put your tent up safely and securely, along with a vast selection of camping accessories to set you up for your stay!

Creature comforts…

Once you’ve got the basics nailed, it’s time to think about picking up those bits and bobs that will make your stay that little bit more enjoyable. From camping furniture to picnic sets, outdoor cooking equipment to sleeping bags, you could end up with a very long list! Not to worry if you do, you can always pick up a roof rack to carry everything to and from the camp site in! For all those added extras, take a look at World of Camping, Mountain Warehouse and Cotswold Outdoor

Time for fun!

Part of the fun of camping is enjoying spending time outdoors. Make the most of your camping trip with some outdoor games or bikes for all the family.

For the glampers…

If your idea of going camping is more about heading for a luxury site, with tepees and beds all set up for you to simply jump into, you may want to consider some designer outdoor clothing and shoes. For the ultimate in British outdoor style, you can’t go wrong with a Barbour jacket. Inspired by the British heritage look and combining both practicality and enduring style, the Barbour brand has expanded their collection over recent years and now offers a full range of attire for men, women and children.

Joules is also a great place to look for outdoor wear with a touch of style and an added sprinkling of fun. We particularly love their printed wellington boots – available in a range of lengths, colours and eye catching prints.
