Directions to our shop: York Station is a central hub for the region. All trains from London through to Scotland stop at York, as do the cross-country trips from Birmingham and Manchester. Once at York follow the path left out of the station (100yards) to a crossroad, continue ahead and follow as the footpath veers right under the City wall and then left at the traffic lights. Proceed ahead, you will find yourself crossing a bridge over the River Ouse. The major shopping area, and the heart of the city, are now of close distance. You should be able to see York Minster ahead, about 50 yards from the bridge take a right. A short distance down this street and past the prominent Post Office takes you into a small Plaza. Turn left and ahead you should see a Quaint little street called Stonegate. Our store is midway on the left!

Most bus services stop at the Train station so follow the above directions. We also have a Park and Ride service from the Designer Outlet (just off the A64), Monks Cross and Askam Bryan. Most people find these easy to use and much cheaper than central car parks.

The Nearest Parking – The centre of York is limited access. It is encouraged that visitors use the various Park and Ride schemes located on the outer ring road of the city. There are a number of car parks central: Clifford’s Tower, Picadilly, Leaman Road, Clarence St., Foss Island, Stonebow and Rougier St. These are normally sign-posted as you enter the city. Charges are varied depending upon where you go.

Our shop was opened March 1990 and has been a strong feature of one of York’s most recognised streets now for almost 20 years. Located on Stonegate (recently voted the 2nd best fashion clothing street in the UK by Google), which in medieval York housed many of the city’s most prominent members of the merchant classes, as well as a strong presence from the Minster’s religious hierarchy. The building itself dates from the Stuart period, like the majority on Stonegate. Most of the buildings on the street have also been affected by the Georgian and Edwardian periods, when many older buildings were bricked up on the outside to make them look newer, while retaining the original interior features. The shop’s main nod to this past is the exposed beams on the first floor.

Staff Recommendations –  Like most cosmopolitan cities, York is no exception in that it has many coffee shops. However if you are wanting somewhere child friendly, then the Spurriergate centre is a great place to drop off at serving healthy food too.

A great Bistro close to the Store is Stonegate Yard. This is a firm favourite with the York Team.
If take-away sandwiches are chosen desire, then our recommendation is Krusties. This one is a best kept secret from tourists.
For somewhere in the evening we strongly recommend Cafe No.8. Amazing food in an intimate environment.

Local Knowledge – York has been known as England’s second city for the best part of the last millenium. This stems initially from its origins as a major Roman settlement in the north (known as Eboracum), and then the first city in the Viking north (known as Jorvik). In Cristian and then Norman England, it maintained its dominance in the north in the large part due to its religious rivalry with Canterbury and its strategic location for campaigns against the Scots.

York’s lack of industrial success has led to the maintaining of the medieval street plan within the city walls, allowing for both a great day out shopping and a wonderful insight into the life of York in its heyday. York still holds so very much of that Viking heritage today, however, as the majority of York’s street names derive from their occupation here. In Norse, ‘gate’ means street, hence Monkgate and Coppergate. The towers which allowed access through the city walls were known as ‘bars’, hence the saying in York that ‘ The streets are called gates, the gates are called bars and the bars are called pubs!’ By the way, there are apparently 365 of these within the city wall, one for each day of the year.

    WE ARE OPEN!! Business (almost) as usual here at Rohan York. We even have a card machine up and running so can accept card payments – which, alas, it seems most of our neighbours in the town centre cannot.

    We are still without a working phone line, but rest assured we are all here and we are open! We’re here ’til six tonight, then back to our normal 9.30am-5.30pm from tomorrow. It would be lovely to see you all!

    What a surprisingly mild few days it’s been here in York this last week! And, as if by magic, we’ve coincided the arrival of a few Spring/Summer 2016 lines with this unseasonable weather. So Women’s Coastline Jackets, Men’s and Women’s Spark Vests, Men’s short-sleeved Merino Ts and Women’s long-sleeved Merino Henleys – all are in and all are already selling!

    Call us here in Rohan York on 01904 674619 if you have any enquiries about these or any other items.
