About Us

The Brokedown Palace was established in 2012 in a little wooden cabin down by the River Lea. The River Lea runs through the Lea Valley, a wild place in the beating heart of a great metropolis. The Lea Valley was our inspiration - combining a love of both the city and nature.

We now have a shop in Shoreditch, supplying everything you need to live a life in the outdoors. We stock brands who provide long-lasting, quality products that will never let you down - whether you’re commuting in the city or hiking the mountains.

We are a local independent business, and we truly value your support!
