Why Brompton?

The ultimate bike for people who live in cities. Small wheels mean fast acceleration and increased manoeuvrability through busy streets.

Handmade In London Since 1975

Brompton’s history can be traced back to 1975, when the inventor and founder, Andrew Ritchie, created prototypes of Brompton bikes from his bedroom in South Kensington, London. Each bike is hand brazed by a skilled craftsman at our London factory. This makes every bike incredibly tough and unique. Each brazer is trained by Brompton for 18 months and has a ‘signature’ which they stamp on the parts of the bike that they work on.

The most reliable folding bike

Each folding bike is built by hand by our highly qualified team at our factory in London.

Compact & easy to store

Bike theft can be an issue, however you can simply take your Brompton with you due to its compact size.


Its flexibility allows you to get more out of the city, day and night.

Available across the UK

We have dealerships and our very own Junction stores to help you pick the right Brompton for you.

We are creators
