KING TENTS: origin story

1st Generation:

KING TENTS is a trading division of C & D King Ltd which was established in the late 70's funnily enough by Colin & Diana King. The first tents they made were for a local scout group their two sons (Russell & Spencer) attended. Diana retired several years ago, Colin “will never retire!”

2nd Generation:

Spencer and his wife Hazel joined many years ago and lead the day to day running of the company. They are both firm believers that all the fun jobs somehow end up with the 1st and 3rd generations..

3rd Generation:

Spencer and Hazel's daughters (and nieces, nephews, god-sons and god-daughters) are heavily involved with product testing!

Colin has a history in engineering and manufacturing, Spencer has put up tents and marquees all his life while Hazel's organisational skills bring it all together. We are very proud of the tents we design and sell -that's why we put our name on them.

We want to enable people to enjoy the outdoors, that doesn't mean re-enacting Scott of the Antarctic on the side of a mountain, it means finding the right tent, equipment and accessories to ensure everyone looks forward to any outdoor trip. Tell us your vision of comfortable camping and we'll do our best to make it a reality.

We hope you enjoy looking round our products and helpful advice, if there is anything you want but cannot find then let us know and we'll do our best to help/advise.
