The Rohan Shop in Taunton was opened in June 2009 and is located in historic Bath Place, which is a Victorian shopping arcade full of interesting, independent shops. It is very picturesque and is famed for its historic value in the town. It is believed that in the middle ages, this narrow lane was the main route into Taunton – a not impossible situation, when you consider that the roads were so bad that goods were moved by pack-horse and people either rode or walked. The street was straightened in the 18th Century and all the buildings date from this time.
The shop has two floors with Rohan’s men’s clothing on the ground floor and Rohan women’s clothing on the first floor which has a sloping beamed roof with skylights, giving it a lovely light and airy atmosphere.
Staff Recommendations – Bath Place has a pitcher & Piano with a pleasant beer garden. There is also a range of local and independent shops, ranging from galleries and book shops to High-end Fashion clothing and shoes. It also has a range of different cafes’ and a brilliant sandwich bar right next door called Loafers.
