Welcome to our Axminster Store

Discover the Axminster Tools experience. New location, same great service and more...

More space, more products, more opportunities to get hands on. Somewhere we can all share our passion.

The new shop is located on Millwey Rise Industrial Estate, next to the state-of-the-art warehouse, which means more products in store and no driving to a separate location for customer collections. The new shop is bigger with more interactive space. That's more opportunities for you to get hands on, bigger and better in-store demonstrations and more space to support the local community with getting creative.
