It used to be so simple – we had the world’s best mountain bike guide – Peak District Mountain Biking, the world’s best climbing book – Banff Grand Prize winner Jerry Moffatt – Revelations and the world’s second-best bouldering guide Peak District Bouldering, after 7 & 8 Fontainebleau obviously.
But we simply couldn’t stop there. Now we have a lot of books, a lot of great outdoor adventure books – climbing books, mountain biking books, fell and trail running books, hillwalking books and even bizarrely enough a book on cold, open water, swimming.
Here’s a quick go-to round up of our special offers which may be a help to find just what you are looking for on our website.
First up, all our books are 20% off all the time, and if you’re UK based, shipping is free.

Special offers and reduced books
Many of our older books, some books we perhaps just printed too many of and a few we want to get out there, are often half price on the site. Some you’ll just need to find, but here’s a quick list of the best of them:
Looking to write an adventure book?
If you’re a prospective author, you could do worse than reading one of our books before you submit. We are quite specific about what we like. I’d like to say we know our readers and we know what they like to read. Before submitting, I do suggest looking at Big Trails: Great Britain & Ireland, or Swimming Wild in the Lake District if you’re sending in a guidebook, and Broken or Tides if it’s more narrative. These books demonstrate that unique combination of quality, sometimes quirky writing style, narrative arc and well-presented insight.
We have a bunch of books that have been signed by the author; the best of which are:
The biggest bargains
Our book bundles offer the biggest savings on the site. We’ve collections of all sorts of books, for example, our wildlife book bundle is £36 and our Peak District Bouldering bundle is £28. There’s also a walking, a children’s book and a John Burns bundle to choose from. Click HERE to visit our Book Bundles page.
The best of the best
What would we recommend is the best climbing book or the best outdoor adventure book?
Here’s five to get you started:
And finally, something special
Our collection of gift boxes make beautiful presents. For the price of the books, we package them up with a few choice other gifts, finished with elegant rustic wrapping. Popular as birthday presents, the All About Scotland gift box is the most popular, followed by Adventures on Two Wheels and Inspiring Reads.
And if that is no help at all – just phone us up and tell us what you like and we can recommend a book, taking payment over the phone … we’re usually in from 8.30 a.m. until 5 p.m., unless we’ve gone climbing.
