Can anyone advise where there are tents etc on display, other than at Go, we are based in Lancaster so have easy access to the motorway.

Am particularly keen on viewing Outwells.

Thank you

Hi, here you go

2012 Yeomans Camping Shows 2012 21/03/2012 to 29/08/2012
If youre wanting that personal hands-on touch to your new tent or camping accessory purchase then why not pay a visit to one of the 25 Yeomans camping shows.

At each camping show you will find up to 100 tents on display from various manufacturers including Peakland, Outwell, Vango, Coleman & Sprayway giving you the chance to view hands-on each tent up close and personal, allowing you to make an informed decision with regards to the tent and how it may serve you.

In addition to the substantial display of tents, there will also be an on-site marquee jam packed with a whole array of camping equipment.

Friendly and knowledable staff will be available 8am to 8pm to help you choose the right equipment for your next camping holiday

Click on the link to see the full show dates and locations.

Click here for the link for this event

Cheers  Ratty

There is Wifields between Haslingden and Accrington right on the route between the M65 and the M66, quite a few tents on display including the usual Outwells, Vango tents etc.

Wow, thanks for the tip about the Outdoor Action display kopte4ever - last time we went they only had about 5 tents up.  Looks like they have some Kampa's too according to the website - am dying to see one in the flesh after all the rave reviews on here

Hi russandjax

try Manchester GO Outdoors - 40 to 50 tents on an indorr display

Blackburn, Stockport and Wigan all have GO Outdoors stores too

Or

If you fancy a trip - Our Wakefield store has a huge outdoor display of 70+ tents & my store at Pudsey (Leeds) has around 40 pitched on an indoor display

hope this helps

cheers

Dave

Yea went in last week had few kampa tents. 5 tents though is bit small. I always seen more than that even through winter. Did you go on all 3 floors all way to top floor. That's where main family tents are :)

We visited Yeomans at Ambleside on Sunday and to be honest not much there...alot of the tents seemed to be last years models too...no wonder Yeomans is heading down the pan!! And the marquee 'packed' with equipment wasn't exactly bulging either!!

Hi kopte4ever,

It was last year when we last went in to look at tents although have been many times since for other things!  There may have been more than 5 but yes, we did go right up to the top and they certainly didn't have many on display.  Am looking forward to going at the weekend for a look

Hi,
Camping on Tyne is at a small village called Mickley- near Hexham. Only about 25 minutes from Carlisle coming off M6 onto A69 then follow signs for hexham. link below.

It is a combined camping centre/garden centre- but has a good selection of tents pitched and good day out.

Going to Poynton on Sunday! Could be a bit wet though, and windy for that matter so could be fun seeing tents flying all over the place!!
