Directions to our shop – From Piccadilly Train Station – exit the station onto Piccadilly Approach, walk all the way down through Piccadilly Gardens, continue straight on down Market Street until you get to Marks & Spencers, then turn left at New Cathedral Street on to St Ann’s Square and take the first right down the side of HSBC. We are located just before Barton Arcade.
From Victoria Train Station – Exit through the main entrance leading to Corporation Street, turn right and head for the Manchester Eye (big wheel) in Exchange Square. Turn right behind Selfridges onto New Cathedral Street, walk straight down across the junction on to St Ann’s Square and turn right at HSBC to find our store located just before Barton Arcade.

Parking – Multi-story parking is located at the MEN Arena, the Great Northern Warehouse on Deansgate, beneath Manchester Central (formerly GMEX), Spinningfields and the Piccadilly and Oxford road areas. Most streets have on-street parking, which are guarded by parking meters. There is also a smattering of surface carparks in the city, the closest to Rohan (and biggest) is located next to the MEN Arena at the former Boddington’s Brewery.

Buildings to see  – Manchester Town Hall. Completed in 1877 by architect Alfred Waterhouse. one of the most stunning pieces of Neo-Gothic Victorian civic buildings in Britain. Completed for a then astounding £750,000, this building is a fine representation of the pomp, grace yet sheer tastelessness of yesteryear’s City leaders. If you have the chance, we recommend you take a tour of the building’s interior as it is the inside of a building where Waterhouse’s design skills truly excelled.

You may also want to check out the John Rylands Library on Deansgate. Another brilliant piece of Neo-Gothic architecture, the Rylands is widely regarded as the gem in Manchester’s architectural crown. Built by John Rylands’ wife as homage to her husband’s sterling municipal work for Manchester, the building still stands today (recently renovated with much love) and is open to the general public. Again, another building where an internal tour will pay dividends.

If you’re looking for something a bit more modernist, then check out the Urbis at Cathedral Gardens, just next to The Triangle and Arndale shopping centres and next to the Printworks entertainment complex. Shaped like a glass ship, the way this building interacts with its surroundings and its sweeping forms seemingly melting seamlessly into its environment shows just how much Manchester has regenerated itself with scope for the idea of sustainable regeneration as well as respectfully combining the new with the old. Urbis is currently undergoing a revamp which will eventually lead to the building becoming the home of the National Football Museum.

The architects of Urbis were Ian Simpson Architects, who are also responsible for the first 150m+ skyscraper outside of London; the Hilton Tower. This brilliant glass tower is located on the bottom end of Deansgate, and can be seen for miles around. If you have time, take a trip to the 23rd floor Skybar for a drink and food and admire the beautiful views stretching from the Pennines to Liverpool and on a wonderfully clear day, even Snowdonia.

If none of this takes your fancy, have a wander over to Spinningfields, a new business district located just next to Granada Studios in Manchester City Centre. You can shop, eat or drink, all whilst sitting by the River Irwell, Manchester’s boundary to Salford. In Spinningfields is probably Manchester’s quirkiest new building; the Civil Justice Centre. This is a civil law court designed by Australian architects Denton Corker Marshall and is one of very few forays into the British architectural landscape. 80m tall and shaped like an open filing cabinet, it really is a stunning building which is worth a visit.

If you just want to see some of our wonderful Victorian/Edwardian architecture, then you may wish to have a stroll all over town. From areas like Spring Gardens with the stunning yet petite former Reform Building, to the old warehouse canyons of Whitworth Street, or even to the former slum areas of the Northern Quarter or the industrial splendour of high steel bridges and canals in Castlefield, you will not fail to find something to whet your architectural/engineering appetite.

If you would like to see more of Manchester’s architectural heritage, you should visit the Cube Gallery on Portland Street. Backed by Government agency CABE, Cube is a gallery dedicated to new and old architecture and the impact it has on our lives.

Staff Recommendations – Starbucks and Café Nero are both within 30 seconds walking distance from our store. Deansgate though, has a multitude of various pubs, bars & restaurants, basically anything to suit any individuals taste. Being that we are located right in the heart of Manchester, we have anything and everything you could need from a busy metropolis and all literally on our doorstep. Two recommendations would be the Northern Quarter for drinks, food and a creative bohemian buzz and also the Cornerhouse, which is a cinema/bar/art gallery on the corner of Oxford Road and Whitworth Street, just across the road from the Palace theatre.

Local Knowledge – In Manchester City Centre, you can visit many tourist attractions. There are plenty of museums, art galleries, theatres, music venues; in fact there is pretty much anything you can think of in our fine City. We have Manchester Art Gallery located on Mosley Street, the Whitworth Art Gallery on Oxford Road as well as the Lowry at Salford Quays.
The Lowry is home to Lowry Theatre Group and is frequently host to some of the top travelling shows. There is also the Royal Exchange Theatre, a beautiful theatre located just across the street from our store. Other theatres in Manchester City Centre are the Palace Theatre on Oxford Road and the Opera House which is on Quay Street, leaving just the Contact Theatre (a university run theatre group) located at Manchester University on Oxford Road.

We also have museums, our biggest being the Museum of Manchester which is located on Oxford Road in the University District. If you’re interested in Manchester’s industrial heritage, you may want to take a trip to the Museum of Science and Industry on Liverpool Road, just off Deansgate and Castlefield, about 10 minutes walk from our store.

There are many other attractions here in Manchester, most famous will probably be our two football stadiums, Old Trafford for Manchester United and the City Of Manchester Stadium which is the home of Manchester City. Both resplendent in their own architectural right and well worth a visit if you want to get to the heart of this football mad city. We also have several music venues dotted throughout the City, from the very large MEN Arena down to the cosily intimate small bars around the Northern Quarter.

If you can’t find something you want in Manchester, then basically, it doesn’t exist.

    So as most of you know there has been an awesome sock offer on in our store over the past couple of weeks, and they are selling out like hot cakes! If you spend over £20 the socks go through at half price, that’s £8 for our fabulous cool and cold socks ( a total steal ), which ends on the 13th of December. A really good idea for stocking fillers and little Christmas gifts..
    It’s also the last five days of our winter warmers specials, so make sure you don’t miss out on either of our brilliant offers!

    Bit of a cold start this morning but with the weekend nearly over and the weather looking warmer its the perfect time to come and see all the “winter warmers” offers we have available right now!

    With a variety of jumpers and jackets at 20% off it is the perfect time to get wrapped up ready for the winter weather, with the Christmas markets just opened last week you can even get nice mug of mulled wine afterwards.

    hope to see you soon!

    We’ve also been getting involved with a local photographer, Simon Brocklehurst, who has travelled left, right and centre in our fabulous Rohan gear taking some breathtakingly beautiful pieces.

We’re really excited to be working with him, and we are looking forward to more future endeavours. We’ve got all of his details and more images to view in store, feel free to ask us for any details.

    Well the clocks have gone back and a wet start to the morning Winter is definitely on the way! With Manchester on half-term its the perfect excuse to get some shopping in.

    The Tundra is already getting lots of attention. Ideal for adventurous winter travel, cold-weather camping, everyday wear around town and even bird watching!

    The shell fabric is a 100% polyamide with a Durable Water Repellency™ finish. So it’s tough, highly wind resistant and offers a certain amount of water protection to the precious down filling. It won’t keep you dry in a downpour – but it’ll shed snow and shrug off light showers, which is a necessity in Manchester.

    Filled with a blend of 80% duck down and 20% feathers with a Fill Power of 650+ its brilliant for those winter city breaks or even some après ski!

    Looking forward to seeing you in store!
