About Us

The Binocular Shop is a trading name of First Light Optics Ltd (the UK's largest astronomy retailer) but whereas FLO specialises in binoculars and telescopes for astronomy TBS is focused on optics for birding and nature observation. 

If you have already shopped at First Light Optics you will be pleased to hear The Binocular Shop operates from the same premises, has the same company culture, competitive prices, fast delivery and no fuss 30-day returns. It also has the same ecommerce platform and Payment Service Provider so transactions are safe and secure. 

Our approach to retailing:

We are an established UK company (launched 2006) with a strong emphasis on product knowledge and customer service. We also hold plenty of stock so most orders are dispatched same-day for overnight delivery. 

We offer only products that we know to be trustworthy (products we are confident will perform well, batch-to-batch, consistently). All our stock is sourced direct from the manufacturer or from the manufacturer's appointed UK distributor (we do not grey import) so is covered by a full UK warranty. 

We look forward to serving you,

Alex', Annette, Grant, James, Lisa, Martin, Olly, SteveB & SteveG smiley
