Store in UK?

Hello,
Soon I will travel to some parts of the United Kingdom, could you recommend a store that is worth looking at binoculars? In-Focus, SWoptics maybe ..?
Thanks
Wachi

I can personally recommend Focus Optics near Coventry https://www.focusopticsltd.co.uk/ and Cley Spy https://www.cleyspy.co.uk/ on the north Norfolk coast. Both of these are in countryside surroundings which makes trying out binos a pleasure.

If you're in the east of England visiting CleySpy (at Glandford, about 5 miles from the town of Holt in Norfolk), there is also the One-Stop Nature Shop at Burnham Deepdale, InFocus at Titchwell (plus the RSPB shop at the reserve in the same village), and further south, the RSPB shop at Minsmere in Suffolk, and Viking Optical at Halesworth (about 10 miles from Minsmere).
All i could recommend is - if you have particular equipment in mind - you contact them in advance to check they stock it / have it in stock.
We're quite fortunate in East Anglia!

Last week I visited CleySpy.
They have excellent facilities to try the equipment and extensive stock of binoculars & scopes, Zeiss, Leica, Swarovski, Kowa, Nikon etc.

Also the area around Norfolk is blessed with superb Nature reserves.

I would recommend The Birder's Store in Worcester - I've bought 3 pairs of binoculars from them in the relatively recent past and their prices and customer service has always been excellent.

I too have bought three pairs from there in the last year and each time the experience has been superb. No pressure sales, just great help and advice.
