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?

    When the new season Bags appeared in Dark Gold
    I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sold.
    Then Came the Pampas Jacket in an identical hue
    and I’m thinking, is it me, or our designers who haven’t a clue?

    Well very quickly I’m thinking it must be me
    this level of interest I didn’t foresee.
    Much to my surprise they are selling rather well.
    It seems they lift the spirits, they make you feel swell.

    Now I find when the shop is quiet they call to me
    I keep trying them on, just to see!
    The colour has got to me, I think I’m hooked
    Today I tried the jacket (again) to be told how good I looked.

    This guilty pleasure is not just for the men.
    We have the Tourer Jacket for you women.
    I keep seeing our manager try it on everyday
    she carries it off I have to say.

    It just goes to prove we don’t always know what will sell.
    When it comes to Dark Gold our designers have done well,
    and today I hear our Area Manager is really keen
    which is good for us, he’ll never creep up unseen!

    Britain’s National Bird

    Voting has now opened to nominate
    Britain’s National Bird. Unlike many countries
    Britain does not have, and has never had, a
    national bird and yet we have many iconic birds.

    The flock has been narrowed down to the final
    ten and you can now go on-line and cast your vote.
    The result will be announced on the same day as
    the general election result and is sure to over-shadow
    it in terms of national importance.

    For me it’s the Barn Owl, but I understand the Robin
    is the bookies favourite.

    Fenland Shirts – just received the new short sleeved version of our very successful poly/cotton shirt. Three really great colours.

    Frontier Jacket – replacement for our great Field Jacket and better in every way. Two great colours for that bird watching or safari trip.

    Freight Vest – updated version with a lighter more flexible fabric. Just as tough and with 10 pockets.

  31. Rohan Norwich says:


    Are you the shy retiring type,
    do you like to hide at the back?
    Or are you the bold, devil may care sort,
    prepared to give anything a crack?

    If you are the latter,
    then we have some trousers for you.
    Bags in an exciting new colour,
    far removed from fifty shades of blue.

    You will spot them as soon as you walk in,
    it’s a colour we call Dark Gold.
    They are a little bit in-your-face,
    a little bit bold!

    But are you confident enough
    to give them a try,
    Strut your stuff,
    With your head held high?

    They are not for the timid,
    they are not for the shy.
    They will definitely get you noticed,
    they will certainly catch the eye.

    If you like them but still want more,
    there is a matching jacket to come.
    We call it the Pampas,
    and together you will out-dazzle the sun!

    So if you fancy yourself as the dandy of the Dales
    or the dapper chappie of the Wold
    It’s the latest Rohan Bags you need
    in rather fetching Dark Gold.

    • Peter Clinch says:

      I must admit my yellow Bags saw little enough action that I sent them to Keswick to frighten the shoppers there, but the Dark Gold holds little fear. My favourite Bags Shorts are my shocking pink ones, after all… (my original pair, rather faded and much repaired, are also in the Originals collection, but I sourced another pair that had clearly seen a lot less sun and wear on eBay).

  32. Rohan Norwich says:

    Another new arrival today.
    For the men this time we have the return of the Escapers.
    The popular lightweight stretch trouser, now available in 3 colours.

    New self-service machines but we say ‘no way’.

    Coffee shops are adding stuff to bring us good cheer
    Stuff you wouldn’t dream of any other time of year.
    Perhaps it time to buck the trend
    Re-think the presents we usually send.

    The true magic of Christmas is found far from the tills
    It lies on the byways, it exists in the hills.
    Christmas trees for me grow by the dunes
    The sound of the breeze in the branches, my Christmas tunes.

    It’s not about penguins, red lorries or blue chocolate bars
    It’s about a walk on the beach under the stars.

  65. Rohan Norwich says:


    When the sun was shining and the sky was blue,
    you said to yourself “this old jacket will do”.
    But now it’s raining proper rain
    and that old jacket’s proving a pain.

    The seams are leaking, you’re getting wet.
    The membrane has failed, you’re in a sweat.
    The outer surface is wetting out.
    The zip has gone, it’s had it’s day beyond a doubt.

    On top of that it’s heavy too,
    you might not like it but you know what you have to do.
    It’s time to put that old jacket in the (recycle) bin,
    seek out ROHAN and come on in.

    We’ll show you jackets that are bang up to date,
    technology and performance that’s truly first rate.
    Yes, it’s going to cost you a few pounds and pence,
    but come on, replace that old jacket, you know it makes sense.

    The first condensation on my window pane,
    after a dry month, the return of the rain.
    Blue skies give way to grey,
    it now feels chilly at both ends of the day.
    Leaves to rake up on my lawn,
    spiders indoors in search of the warm.
    My thoughts change to comfort food,
    it warms me up, it lifts my mood.
    The fields around me are suddenly bare,
    muddy puddles reappear.
    Autumn is here with winter to come,
    I shall venture outside in rain, wind and sun.

    When it comes to mathematics, I know I can be a bit slow,
    but there is one thing that even I know.
    15% of not a lot, is not a lot,
    whereas 15% of a lot, is a lot!

    Now this is a very good thing,
    especially in an Autumn that feels like Spring.
    This may be the driest September for 60 years,
    but being the great British weather it’s sure to end in tears.

    So with this in mind Gift Your Gear will run a little bit longer,
    making the pound in your pocket all the stronger.
    So take this opportunity to get 15% off a new waterproof jacket.
    You’ll see from the receipt you’ll be saving a packet.

    And when the rain comes as surely it must,
    you’ll have a waterproof jacket in which you can trust.
    Now you could always chose to get 15% off a new pair of socks for your feet,
    but that won’t seem such a good saving when you’re battling through the rain and the sleet!

    Gift Your Gear – Donate your unwanted outdoor gear

  76. Rohan Norwich says:


    On Saturday we were very busy indeed.
    Being short-staffed left us working at full speed.
    Lunchtime came and went and no food was had,
    but customers come first so we didn’t feel sad.

    A very good customer sensing our plight,
    thought a little sweet treat would be just right.
    A six pack of doughnuts was left within reach,
    so The Bard and the Manager wolfed down three each!

    We wouldn’t normally be so weak of will
    but there were queues at the changing rooms, queues at the till.
    Buzzing with sugar we worked through the fray
    and ended having a very good day.

    So many thanks to our customers for your patience and good cheer,
    provision of doughnuts and items of Gift Your Gear.
    Looking back there were only a couple of things missing from our day,
    a large cappuccino and a cafe latte.

    Now I know I’m being cheeky and should be grateful no matter what,
    but it has to be Cafe Nero with that fabulous extra shot!

    The Bard at the Back of the Inns.

    Things are not always what they appear to be,
    not all the poetry you read here is written by me.
    Spotting the difference is not that hard,
    there’s no mistaking the work of the Bard.

    Our Asst Manager, Sally is her name,
    fancies herself at this poetry game.
    She likes to think she can steal my thunder,
    but resorting to verse is bit of a blunder.

    Rohan customers shouldn’t settle for second best,
    you know our products pass the test.
    So the poetry you read should be just the same,
    no pale imatation, clumsy and lame.

    So if you happen upon some dodgy prose,
    or poor little rhymes that get up your nose.
    It’s not the work of the Bard, it’s the Bardess,
    and I apologise profusely for any distress.

    Please don’t think of me as cruel or unkind,
    it’s not that I fear a rival, I really don’t mind.
    But managers should manage and poets should write,
    so there will be no more Bardess on this web site.

    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.
