September 2013 saw the opening of the fifth Brompton Junction; situated in the heart of London, the home city of the Brompton brand, the store promises to enthuse and inspire Brompton fans both near and far. The location of the flagship Brompton Junction on Long Acre, Covent Garden, not only reflects the capital’s unique relationship with the brand but is also the site of the workshop from where Britain’s first hobby-horse bicycle was made and sold. The store covers two levels and comprises a bike and accessories show room and a workshop. Why not pop in and relax with a book and a cup of coffee, while the Brompton mechanics get to work in the background? The London store is also known as Brompton Junction 18, as it is the home of the eighteenth bike from the initial production run of 400 Bromptons made in 1982.
