About Us

We founded The Brokedown Palace in 2012. We started out selling online in a little wooden cabin in our garden on the banks of the River Lea in Hackney. Our logo is that cabin and Brokedown Palace is a Grateful Dead song about being by the waterside.

The River Lea runs through the Lee Valley Nature Reserve which is an incredible wilderness in the heart of the city.

The Lea Valley was the inspiration for our business -  we love living in London and we love the outdoors and we wanted The Brokedown Palace to encompass these two things. We also wanted to sell ethical brands who respect the nature we love.

We now have two shops in Shoreditch and Spitalfields and sell online all over the world.  We supply 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 in the city or the wilderness.
