About Us

How it all began….

Hill 2 High Street is an independent outdoor clothing store based just north of Newcastle upon Tyne at The Milkhope Centre on the Blagdon Estate.

We opened after many years experience of the outdoors and outdoor clothing.  Since the late 1970s our family has been involved in the outdoor industry, experiencing and reporting on a range of outdoor equipment.  It is this passion and knowledge we bring to you at Hill 2 High Street.

We opened our doors in late 2020 just after the national lockdown when the North East was still in Tier 3 – one of the few activities we could all get involved in was the enjoyment of the great outdoors.   To do that and stay warm and dry you need good quality kit!


What we stand for

Our aim is to source and offer a range of quality outdoor clothing which is fit for purpose, durable, sustainably produced and value for money. 

The brands we stock have been chosen with the environment and ethics in mind.  This could be using recycled materials, supporting education programmes or replanting schemes as well as ensuring an ethical supply chain - hence our strap line – Clothing with Conscience.


What we offer

We stock a wide range of ladies and gents outdoor clothing including coats and jackets (waterproof, insulated) trousers, base and mid layers as well as accessories including backpacks, hats, gloves and walking poles.

All our products are the genuine articles and are either direct from manufacturers or from their official distributors giving you peace of mind when buying from us


Valuing our customers

We like having a good customer service experience and we know you do too so we strive to give unbiased, knowledgeable advice so that you get the best kit for your budget.

So, whether you are heading for the hills or simply want to stay warm and dry whilst out and about, come and talk to us about your needs. 

We look forward to welcoming you to Hill 2 High Street.
