Parking - If travelling by car, you could use the vast central Castle Mall car park, which is inexpensive. Other car parks (St Stephens, St Giles and St Benedicts, names reflecting gates in the medieval city wall) are dotted around the city centre. Norwich is a great town to stroll around and, wherever you park, keep your eyes open for historical buildings such as the city’s towering Norman Cathedral (a museum which also houses a wonderful collection of works by the Norwich School of Artists such as Cotman and Crome), the ancient flint Guildhall, The Royal Arcade, our impressive, art deco 1938-built City Hall near the Market Place and the recently re-opened Dragon Hall in King Street.

Staff Recommendations – Two large covered shopping malls, Castle Mall and Chapelfield, are handily placed and are well furnished with restaurants and coffee shops. In fact, there are too many good eateries in town to list, though The Waffle House in St Giles deserves special mention- which has been the location of many staff birthday parties.

Local Knowledge - Norwich was long regarded as the second most important city in the Kingdom (a claim the York store also makes for its own town, we notice!) but the ancient port of Norwich and most of the traditional old light industry for which Norwich was famous- especially shoe manufacturing- has given way here as everywhere else in Britain to new commerce, with tourism, financial and service industries, the local economy’s mainstays nowadays. Happily, many old streets survived the craze to modernise and widen in the 1960′s, notably the picturesque cobbled Elm Hill. Old narrow alleys known as The Lanes house a multitude of interesting little shops, and the city comes alive at night in numerous clubs and pubs and in the well-known Arts Centre. A short trip out of town will bring you to the Norfolk Broads, famed for boating holidays, while Norfolk’s countryside and Seaside resorts bring hundreds of thousands of tourists to the county every year.

With so many attractions on your doorstep in Norwich, why don’t you come and see us?

  9. Steve@Rohan Norwich says:

    You might be surprised to learn,
    a good time to shop with us is during half term.
    Many of our regulars stay away
    fearing, perhaps, the shop will be full of kids at play.
    Be assured you will find no riot,
    as we tend to be very quiet.
    So if you are new to Rohan come in for a chat,
    you won’t be pressurised to buy, we don’t do that.
    And if you want to bring the kids along, we really don’t mind,
    Rohan at half term, a truely great find.
    And once you’ve sampled the quality of our wares,
    you’ll keep coming back for years and years.

  10. Steve@Rohan Norwich says:

    If ever there was a time you needed a top quality waterproof coat/jacket, that time is now.
    With record levels of rainfall and flooding, gales and sea defences being breached, if you are going outside your clothing needs to be state of the art. We tend to be quiet in the shop at this time of year so now is a great time to come in look at the products and discuss your requirements. We are confident that we have exactly the waterproof you need that will perform for many years to come. Don’t skimp on this essential piece of kit. We have waterproofs at several price points. Pop in and see us and have a chat about what you would like.

  11. Rohan Norwich says:

    Many new lines now in stock.
    Pop in and take a look at the new Action Bags for men and for ladies we have the new tourers in the same fabric…

  12. Steve @ Rohan Norwich says:

    Hurry we now have 20% off all sale stock.
    This is a limited offer and runs in store until end of day Saturday 25/1/14

  13. Steve @ Rohan Norwich says:

    Did the discontinuence of Bags for ladies make you sad?
    Does constant change make you mad?
    Well here is a new product you just might like,
    The new Tourers for ladies, trousers born to hike.
    Made of the same Airlight fabric as Bags of old,
    But with a far more flattering fit, I think you may be sold.
    Retaining many of the features you loved for so long,
    I am confident your loyalty to the new Tourers will be just as strong.
    So keep an open mind, come in and give them a try,
    We think they’re better than Bags, and you might just see why.

    Slip on your jacket,step outside, breathe in the air, it’s yours all yours.]

    Have you ever seen a merino sheep sweating in under the sun’s hot glow?
    Have you ever heard a merino sheep bleating his coat makes him itch?

    An Ode to Winter

    Here comes the cold the weatherman said,
    condensation on your windows as you get out of bed.
    Frost on the lawn as you pass through the gate.
    Ice on the windscreen, you are going to be late.
    Your fingers are numb, your nose is dripping.
    Puddles are frozen, a danger of slipping.

    It sounds so forbidding this time of year,
    but it needn’t be so if you have the right gear.
    So wrap up warm, keep the elements at bay.
    Enjoy the winter the Rohan way.

    The Bard at Back of the Inns

  24. Steve @ Rohan Norwich says:

    Christmas is coming, like it or not.
    Time to get flustered, time to to get hot.
    Thinking, will he like this?, will she like that?
    Wasting your money on a load of old tat.

    But Christmas shopping doesn’t have to be like this,
    There is a way to present buying bliss.
    If your friends and family love the great outdoors,
    Then pay us a visit for presents for you and yours.

    We have gift ideas from two pounds fifty to three hundred plus,
    So come in to Rohan and speak to us.
    Christmas shopping is so much easier this way,
    Safe in the knowledge it will be all smiles on the big day.

    Should your gift idea not be a hit,
    the wrong colour, or simply not fit.
    You have no worries with the Rohan service and guarantee,
    After Christmas we’ll sort it for you, great service I’m sure you will agree.

  25. Steve @ Rohan Norwich says:
