South West Outdoor Leisure Specialist
Taunton Leisure have been providing quality outdoor leisure equipment for over 35 years. There are three stores in the South West of England, Taunton, Bristol and Exeter.
They specialise in trekking and walking equipment so boot and rucksack fitting is a big part of their business. The shop stocks over 30 different pairs of walking boots and approach shoes for men and women as well as 50 different rucksacks to choose from.
Camping, Walking And Climbing
Taunton Leisure also has a large camping department and up to twenty tents on display at any one time. Whether it be lightweight backpacking or “glamping” and family camping there should be the right tent for you.
The clothing range is really comprehensive and there is a large range of waterproofs, fleece, softshell and baselayer etc from brands such as RAB, Arcteryx, Icebreaker, The North Face and many more.
There is a very extensive range of climbing equipment. Rock boots, ropes, harnesses and hardwear. In fact they have everything you need to get started or progress forwards and upwards!
Outstanding Knowledge And Customer Service
At the Exeter store the staff pride themselves on providing outstanding customer service. All the staff are involved in outdoor activities in their spare time.
Simon, MD of Taunton Leisure says:
We have keen climbers, walkers, paddlers, runners and cyclists on the team so with that wealth of experience we should be able to answer all of your questions on the equipment we sell and its many uses.
They offer a thorough walking boot fitting service and a “footwear fit guarantee”. They also have a “Price match guarantee” in conjunction with a Privilege Card, which gives you a discount of 10% in store.
Altogether the superb range of quality products, competitive prices and friendly knowledgeable customer service together is an unbeatable combination.
They are also proud to have provided equipment over the years to people such as Pen Hadow and Ann Daniels, polar explorers of some fame and Ian Ridley our local high altitude mountaineer who has summited Everest and several other Himalayan peaks.

The Taunton Leisure Story
Taunton Leisure opened its doors to the general public in 1977 and has been going strong ever since. Having established the Taunton shop they decided to expand and the two logical locations for new stores were Exeter and Bristol.
The Exeter shop was opened in 1991 and has been a great success; being quite close to the moors and the coast we enjoy a wide range of customers with diverse equipment needs.
We hope to be providing great service and quality products for many years to come and we look forward to seeing you in one of our stores in the future.
