Holland & Holland guns are celebrated throughout the world as the perfect combination of artistry and craftsmanship. To understand why, you need simply pick one up, balance it in your hands, and allow your eyes to take in every details of its lines. It displays a purity of design and a functional simplicity that is found more frequently in nature than in the creations of man. Swing and mount the gun to your shoulder and, immediately, your visual sensation is matched by such perfect handling that you know the gun is ideally suited to its purpose. Such an achievement does not come into being by evolution alone, even though Holland & Holland guns and rifles trace their lineage back to the year 1835. Its other parent is curiosity, the desire of the craftsman and gunmaker to see whether an improvement can be made on accepted methods.

The company was founded by Harris Holland in London in 1835 and by the turn of the 19th century had become one of the best known and highly regarded London gun and rifle makers. Taken forward by his nephew, Henry, who became a partner in 1867 (from then on the company was known as Holland & Holland), the company built a gun factory in Kensal Green in 1898 which has since been in continuous use, and which today combines all the wonders of modern component making technology, with the same care and craftsmenship in the gunmaking and finishing operations that Harris and Henry Holland inspired in all their craftsmen all those years ago.

Since 1835, the name of Holland & Holland has been recognised as the benchmark of excellence throughout the world. This quintessentially British company’s heritage of superb craftsmanship has formed the basis of its transformation into a global luxury goods brand that focuses on authenticity, heritage and style.

Holland & Holland also has its very own Shooting Grounds which offers unrivalled facilities for the sporting gun. Set in sixty acres of rolling woodland and open countryside, just 17 miles from Central London, the Grounds combine rural tranquillity with superb access to main transport routes such as the M40, M25, Heathrow and the London Underground system Whether you just want a few practice shots before the season starts, solve a problem with your shooting style or simply learn from scratch, the experienced instructors at the Shooting Grounds will be able to assist you, whatever your needs.

Clay pigeon shooting recently came top in a newspaper poll as the most popular and successful form of corporate entertainment and the extensive facilities available to companies at the Shooting Grounds are quite simply unsurpassed. With a professional organising team and experienced instructors available, hosts can relax in the knowledge that their guests are in very capable hands.

Holland & Holland offers an exclusive line of clothing and accessories that encompass a fabulous range of traditional, but technically advanced outdoor sporting clothing for not only the shooting public but also for the discerning ladies and gentlemen to combine both quality and style. The clothing is beautifully made using only the best of British fabrics.

Bespoke tailoring and personal shopping services are also available as well as a superb array of luxurious accessories.

  • Visited the store 10 years ago and returned now this week. Deeply impressed by the store, the rifles and the staff. A very friendly and informative man demonstrated a shotgun and we got to handle the weapon ourselves. Not often you hold a million in your hands!

  • Super place, really good teaching facility especially the new video rifle range and instructors excellent. The reception staff are helpful but come across as a bit gruff and unfriendly.  more »
