Bank Holiday Weekend at GO Outdoors

Let’s GO Outdoors this Bank Holiday weekend.

We love a bank holiday here at GO Outdoors, and if you’re not already planning a little getaway now that the sun has decided to join us, then why not pop along to your local GO Outdoors store and check out some of the great activities we have planned?

You may have noticed from our latest TV ad, that we are quite excited about the fact that FINALLY the snow has gone, meaning this bank holiday holds quite a bit of promise for getting us ready for the summer ahead.

We currently have an Extra 15% off Tents and Camping Gear online and in store until Monday 6th May.

In a bid to help support the men and women who volunteer for Mountain Rescue, we have also invited them to a selection of our stores to raise funds. The teams will be on hand to offer advice, and tell you a little bit more about what they do. These teams aren’t funded by any government initiative, so all your donations are important.
