“Amazing and curious emporium.”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Behind the busy and usually fascinating frontage displays there are a 3D maze of rooms staircases and displays. Even if you come in with nothing in mind and no particular need or intention to buy, it is very likely that you find the wandering and the thousands of unexpected and out of the ordinary objects enough to coax you into buying something. The staff are helpful and friendly whether you purchase or not.

“Army surplus and much more.”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

Maybe you wouldn't come often but this place is more than a shop, a genuine curious and distracting selection of peculiar and out of the ordinary items as well as huge quantities and selections of practical stuff for people who walk hike camp or spend much of their lives outdoors in all winds and weathers. They have a recently created online shop but the experience of mooching around the old rambling building and the 20% discount attaching to a lot of personal in shop purchases made it worth our coming to take a look.
