Just giving you some useful information about hiring ski clothing...heading to the slopes for half term and didn't want to spend a fortune. Looked high and low for reasonable cost clothing; shocked by the 3 figure sums in the outdoor shops in Covent Garden, then decided to search for hire shops to rent jacket/trews and helmet...It was my osteopath that told me about Finches in Forest Hill SE23. Right opposite Forest Hill overground station. Hired the items for £40 for the week; kids stuff costs £30. Amazing value... south London...independent family business...AND EASY TO GET TO FROM SE1/SE11
It does look like a good shop. I live near there now, so have often thought about going in. for the one time that I went skiing, and needed to buy specific clothes I went to TK Maxx in Lewisham, I'd planned well in advance, all their ski stuff was on racks in the sale can't remember what month it was, but it was only just not peak ski season.
