Arthur Beale

Arthur Beale

Arthur Beale is a yacht chandler rather incongruously situated in the heart of London’s West End. Actually... we were here before the West End, so to us it seems rather strange why the West End chose to wrap itself around an old ropemaker. At least 400 years ago we were making London’s ropes, and we’ve been here ever since!

Our history is rather wonderful, we were an important supplier to expeditions. Amongst our clients were Gino Watkins and Sir Ernest Shackleton, we know this because we still have an old telegram from Gino Watkins and the signed order from Shackleton. Shackleton’s Arthur Beale ice axe is now in the National Maritime Museum.

We even put the flag pole on Buckingham Palace, and Arthur Beale himself broke the flag at the Coronation of King George VI. We are one of the West End’s last remaining independent and historically important stores.

We have created a great range of Arthur Beale goods, with a focus on quality and traditional manufacturing techniques.
