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.

    The general opinion here at Rohan York is that it is now officially cold!

    It seems those golden afternoons of wonderful heat are on their way out, and the cold of the morning is lingering ever longer into the day… time, I think, for a new jumper! So why not pop down and see us in store, where one of our fantastic team will be able to talk you through the key differences between our fleeces and jackets, to find the perfect snuggly layer that’s right for you.

    Remember, bulk and warmth are not the same thing! You may be surprised at how lightweight your winter wardrobe can be!

    Happy shopping

    Gift Your Gear is here again! It’s time to have a good rummage through the wardrobe and find that garment that makes you ask, ‘will I really wear that again?’ and donate it to Gift Your Gear here at Rohan York to claim your 15% discount off all our full priced products!

    Whether it’s too big or too small, well loved or barely used, not quite you any more or just so garish it screams ‘EIGHTIES!’, we’ll take the lot. So long as it’s still suitable for somebody else to use – that means no boots or base layers please (you know who you are from last time) – your gear will find itself a new lease of life with one of over five hundred Gift your Gear beneficiaries, and you’ll get yourself an upgrade! It’s that simple!

    Happy shopping

    It’s getting cold! Believe it or not although it’s beautifully warm in the sun, in the shade and in the evenings the temperature drop is dramatic. Perhaps the perfect time to stock up on some changing weather essentials like our icepack range, warm and insulating with the ability to pack away into almost nothing at all-so it’s no inconvenience to carry around if the sun pops out again in the day.

    So pop down to our Rohan York store to get your hands on some lightweight warming garments.

    And if you have received our new catalogue then bring your £10 giftcard, compliments of Rohan to treat yourself to something new!

    Hope to see you soon,
    Katie
