If you have a couple of hours to waste then Go Outdoors is a must for you. You can spend hours choosing the product you want and when you have finally made your mind up you can ask a member of staff where to find it only to be told it is not in stock. Spent nearly 2 hours looking at tents only to find that the one we wanted (and our reserve choice) were both out of stock. FFS - if its not in stock DON'T DISPLAY IT IN YOUR SHOWROOM. Its not rocket science. Eventually got our tent in a PROPER ACTIVITY SHOP THAT HAD SOME STOCK!!!!!

Having never shopped at GO Outdoors before I Reserved Qty 2 Camping Chairs online to collect from the Swindon Store which I have to say at this point is somewhat gloomy and without doubt uninviting when you venture inside. What initially appeared to be a good online offer turned out to be anything but ! In order to achieve the offer you had to be in possesion of one of their Discount Cards which they actually charge you for, yet at no point during my reserving the chairs was it pointed out to me that this was required. A totally wasted journey to a store that I haven't visited before and certainly wouldn't consider visiting again. An experience that I'll extend to friends and family who generally shop for outdoor and camping equipments outside of Swindon. From this experience I've found that it actually takes very little effort to find comparable products online at very competive prices. In todays very competetive market that surely has to be a recipe for eventual failure. Perhaps others should take notice and learn from this ...

There isn't a huge range of climbing equipment, but for everything else, like camping, hiking, there's a big selection. They do have a climbing wall that you can use when trying climbing shoes. The carpark is huge, so there's always somewhere to park. Staff are really friendly and helpful.

Even though they had a sale on a lot of the items could be bought elsewhere, saying that I really like this store. A very helpful sales assistant pointed out that if I renewed my discount card we would make a large saving on our purchase even after paying for the card. Smiles all round.
