About Us

Established in Shoreditch, London in 2006, Duke of Uke was the first specialist ukulele store in the UK. Duke of Uke quickly drew national press coverage for their spectacular range of ukuleles and their entourage of famous visitors and guest performers. Showcasing a huge selection of ukulele in all shapes and sizes, available in store and online, Duke of Uke was quickly adopted as one of London's hidden treasures. It soon became known as ‘London’s World Famous Ukulele Store’. With a vast program of ukulele lessons, courses and workshops, plus live music events, Duke of Uke continues to be a hot spot for ukulele fans and aficionados all over the world.
