There have been some changes to delivery services online due to the ongoing crisis. UK Next Day delivery can no longer be guaranteed so we have removed this option from our website.
International deliveries may experience some delays due to restrictions placed by the receiving country. Please see the Royal Mail website - scroll down on this page to view specific country restrictions.

Outside Shop is now closed.
Today we closed the doors of Outside for the foreseeable future. This was a difficult decision to take, especially as the Peak District has been busier than ever the last few days with people hoping to visit the shop.
It became impossible to protect staff and customers in this environment and so we chose safety first! This decision leaves our 33 year old business with an uncertain future, however we know the decision was for the greater good.
Now is when we will need you the most, we would appreciate your support buying from Outside online, and let's get through this together. (From a 2 metre distance of course)
In the mean time we will try to keep you amused and informed with posts and videos of products that you will hopefully find useful over these tricky times.
Thank you customers, staff, suppliers, friends and family for all sticking with us in a crazy world.

Stay Psyched!! Stay Outside!! (away from others!)
Outside is still open and trading as normal, however in these crazy times that could change, so please keep an eye on our website and social media pages for updates. The government has now advised restaurants to close so the cafe will be closed from this weekend, until further notice.
As always you can carry on supporting Outside by buying online. We will continue to offer free delivery in the UK and after this is all over we're looking forward to welcoming you all back into the shop and our cafe, which has been a lively hub for all outdoor enthusiasts for 33 years.
For now, if you do come in store, we will keep our distance and keep up with the cleaning. If you need more personal advice please call us on 01433 651936, option 1; and we will be happy to talk you through your online order.

In common with all our friends, family and customers, Outside is keeping a close eye on changing government guidelines, during a tricky time. We will announce on this page and social media channels as soon as we have any updates.
We’ll be following government advice closely and taking as many extra precautions as we can to combat transmission of Covid-19, including extra shop and café cleaning rotas and some changes to the shared condiments and drinks available in the café. Please remember all our café food including tea, coffee and cake is available to take away if you prefer.
If you are feeling well and want to visit the Outside shop, we’ll remain open for you as long as we can. We’d hugely appreciate it if you can make any payments using credit and debit cards, contactless where possible, as this equipment is significantly easier to clean than currency!
We will of course be keeping the website up and running for as long as we can complete delivery, so if there’s something you need, remember all our shop stock is also available online.
Finally, as we’re all in need of a little good news, the latest advice from the BMC is that non-risky outdoor activity (let’s minimise the chances of needing medical or mountain rescue assistance) is a good plan, provided you can use personal transport to get there. There’s that silver lining!
Stay safe all.
