Anyone seen a Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle pushchair in a shop?

I've been wrestling with choosing a pushchair for ages, and from reviews and reading think I may finally have chosen one - the Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle. But I've now discovered that hardly anywhere stocks it, and I'd like to see one before I buy it.
I live in the NE of England, but am travelling to Manchester, York and London in the next month so would see one there if I could.
Any one have any ideas?
Alternatively, anyone got any comments about the Urban Jungle as an all terrain pushchair, suitable for dog walking, maybe jogging, as well as pottering about in town?
Many thanks

I've got the older version - Mountain Buggy Urban - and it is the best pushchair I've ever had (and I've had a few, being a CM!).

Excellent in the fields, dog walking (easy to push one-handed), brilliant in the snow, I have jogged (well, pretend pony-trotted, as you do) and it coped well with that. In town, the wide wheel base can be a bit of a pain but the pros outweigh this con.

Hope that helps!

I'm in the south west so no help whatsoever about finding one though - I had to import mine from Oz, via my local baby shop.

Is the Urban Jungle discontinued? The current MB are made by phil & teds now, you're probably better off getting a 2nd hand one of ebay tbh.

Paul Stride in York have the current MB range, as well as some older stock looking here. They're really good, the showroom is packed with good pushchairs and customer service is excellent.

Thanks to you all, you're far more helpful than MB themselves (who said I should just look further afield, or buy one without seeing it). I've spoken to the shop in York who have one in stock, and I'll hopefully be able to visit there in a few weeks.
Thanks again.
