About Us

About this shop

Welcome to the online shop of the BMC (British Mountaineering Council). We are the national representative body for climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers in England and Wales, and are based in Manchester, UK. The shop stocks a wide variety of products to both inspire and educate – from classic books to the latest films – all with a great BMC members’ discount. All proceeds from the shop are also put straight back into our work for climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers, so the only one to profit is you.

About the BMC

Established in 1944, the BMC is the national representative body for climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers in England and Wales. Our work is broad-ranging: protecting access to the hills and cliffs, investigating equipment failures, providing expert safety advice, organising competition climbing, producing climbing guidebooks, supporting clubs and their huts, and much more. We also provide leading travel insurance and produce our own national magazine, Summit.

Find out more about the work of the BMC at our main site: www.thebmc.co.uk.
