Smoke-King Tobacconist in Otley
We are Smoke-King, an independent family-run tobacco company in the historic market town of Otley, Yorkshire as well as an online store. We are a smoker’s haven, providing cigarettes, tobaccos, cigars, pipes and lots of smoking accessories.
We're a traditional tobacconist a short drive from Leeds (which is exactly where we used to be based). We previously owned Greens of Leeds which was our quintessential tobacconist in the Headrow, Leeds city centre from 1989-2015. Greens of Leeds was very popular with pipe smokers as well as cigarette and cigar smokers; we liked to think of ourselves as a pipe smoking shop as well as regular tobacco shop.
Now enjoying the quieter town life and cleaner air from the Yorkshire Dales, we are running Smoke-King from Otley. You can browse our cigar and tobacco selection online and order for collection or nationwide delivery, but if you’re local to Otley do pop in to have a look at our fantastic range of classic and new world cigars, as well as pipe accessories and cigarettes too.

Our cigars are stored in a humidity and temperature controlled cigar room, known as a cigar humidor. If you’d like to visit our Otley cigar humidor, then you can find us here.
