If you don't know Outside, we are an outdoor shop and cafe in the heart of the Peak District, just a stone's throw from Stanage Edge. Owned and run by two generations of the Turnbull family, we've been a hub for climbers, walkers and outdoor enthusiasts for 33 years.
Since the Covid-19 crisis all this has been put on hold. We've been genuinely touched by the kind messages you sent us when we made the difficult decision to close our doors, and by your support and unquenchable optimism. It means a lot to all the Outside staff that our amazing community is backing us to get through this; and we have your backs, too - our plan is to keep the virtual psyche up as much as we can while this crisis lasts.

Online Gear Advice
We will be answering gear questions online and by phone, and James will be spending his isolation time (everyone is currently well!) making back garden gear and training videos and being as silly as possible while he does it. You'll be able to view them on our social media channels and on our website – please see the links below.
While the shop is the heart and soul of our business, we've always taken pride in offering the same exceptional customer service and gear selection at outside.co.uk. Right now we're still trading online with only a few changes to delivery options. We're also working on some new deals and focusing on some gear you might be able to use at home to liven up your lockdown.
Please continue to support us by ordering with Outside where you can; our small but dedicated web team are ready and waiting.
If you aren't in a position to be buying new gear right now, please sign up to our newsletter, and follow us on whichever social media channels float your boat.
It's all about staying in touch until the crazy settles down, we throw our doors wide to the sunshine, and staff start grousing about being stuck in the shop. We can't wait.
