Our roundup of the very best tents for family and weekend camping this summer. We’ve been camping for over 30 years, and have owned many different styles of tent, from a variety of brands. Whilst a Lichfield dome tent was all I needed as a student, i’ve since owned Vango, Gelert and Coleman tents as well as last seasons purchase of bell tent, and having camped in all sorts of conditions that would put any tent to the test, we’ve learned how to spot a great tent when we see it.

Whilst we’ve not personally tested the following roundup of tents, looking at their features, heritage of the brand, general usability and cost, we’ve scoured the UKs outdoor shops and brought a selection of our favourite tents available this year, with many models featured being brand new for 2015.
