About Us


Canvas Tent Shop has been operating for over 30 years and is now in its 3rd generation.

The company name has changed on a few occasions, due to the direction of the company and the way canvas tents have become more and more popular, with modern twists and changes.

It all started in the early 80’s, selling ex-army tents and marquees. As time progressed, we began to understand our customers’ demands and started to produce our own canvas tents and marquees.

This led to designing one of our most popular tents, the Bushcraft Bell Tent. Going back to the traditional style Sibley bell tent, this became more and more popular with scout and re-enactment groups.

The demand for bell tents has increased considerably in the last 5 to 6 years, with many modifications being made along the way. Bell tents have become one of the UK’s most popular tents and are great for:

  • Family holidays

  • Festivals

  • Parties

  • Weddings

  • Weekend getaways


Customer feedback has enabled us to expand our range of tents meeting lots of different needs and scenarios in the process. We now proudly supply to all different clientele including:  

  • Family camping

  • Glamping retailers

  • Glamping sites

  • Film production companies

  • Festival and event organisations


Not only do we supply the canvas tents but we now have all the accessories to go along with the tents, such as:

We also provide a traditional line of canvas marquees, patrol tents, dining shelters and fly sheets, all of which are still popular with scout organisations, event organisers and re-enactment groups.

Our reputation has been built through our customer service and our commitment to providing advice and help to campers and glampers throughout the UK – indeed, buying a new tent is not always a straightforward choice to make, so read our guide to choosing the right one for your needs.
