Welcome to Rohan Harrogate from Manager Saul, Rob, Liz, Josh and Gill.
Rohan Harrogate Address: 21 Station Square, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG1 1SY
Shop Phone Number: 01423 5087666
Directions to our shop: The Harrogate train runs between York and Leeds with services every hour. Bus services run frequently from local townships and cities as well. Ripon, Skipton, Northallerton and The Dales are not too far away, so whether you are visiting Harrogate or coming through specifically to see what we have in our shop, it’s easy to get to.
Manager Saul is one of the company’s longest serving Managers, first running the Cambridge store and then moving up to Harrogate in 2004 where he enjoys cycling and running around the local area, as well as making furniture, woodworking as well as a healthy obsession with all kinds of music.
Deputy Manager Rob has been with the company for six years, having recently bought a house with his partner he happily devotes his time to DIY. In his spare moments he is a talented photographer and enjoys a bit of Photoshop from time to time!
Liz, when she is not in the store is a wonderfully devoted mother to Phoebe and having lived in Cyprus and Berlin as a youngster really enjoys spending her time in and around her beloved Harrogate.
Josh is a real outdoorsman, having worked in the outdoors pursuits industry for a number of years brings a very high degree of knowledge about the world outside the front door.
Gill has travelled very extensively around the UK and Europe in campervans, usually her travelling stories ends up with her saying ‘and the car stopped working not long after that…’
Our store was opened in 2005 and is a converted three storey Victorian town house, directly opposite the train station and next door to the Victoria shopping centre. It is constructed from local Yorkshire stone and has a wonderful wrought iron canopy. The front of the building retains period iron framed windows and the overall effect is of a building that has retained its original charm.
We have a rolling exhibition of local photographers’ work around the shop including some very nice local shots by Robert Swindells and a selection of travel photographs by Sam Oakes.
The Nearest Parking – Victoria Multi Storey Car Park which is linked to the Victoria Shopping Centre by a bridge.
Local Knowledge – Harrogate is one of Yorkshire’s most beautiful towns to visit. Often people combine their visit to Rohan with a relaxing spa session in the Royal Baths or a trip to RHS Harlow Carr which is only a 45 minute walk from the store through the beautiful valley gardens.
No visit to Harrogate is complete without a visit to Bettys Tea Rooms where you can enjoy a cup of tea in very smart surroundings with a nice fat rascal (it’s a cake).
We are also home to the Harrogate International Centre which hosts some of the biggest events in the country and was the home of many a story from the early years of Rohan. It makes a great day out for any holiday in the Yorkshire Dales.
When visiting Rohan Harrogate, make sure that you plan to spend lunch in town. Just on the square we have:
Carluccios, serving the best in Italian cuisine to eat in or take out. Bib and Tucker, bringing fabulous hand filled rolls made fresh infront of you and soup to the masses, Filmore and Union with a terrific selection of healthy vegan, veggie, celiac, tasty food, all very posh with superfood salads. The Harrogate Meatball Company, any guesses about what they sell?
Also, just around the corner we have Bettys Tea Rooms, one of the worlds best eating experiences, afternoon tea is serious treat food in rather fine surroundings. If that is too much for you then have a look into Baltzersens Ltd. a Swedish inspired cafe on Oxford Road, lovely cinnamon buns made fresh every morning or Hoxton North, a boutique coffee experience Parliament street, perfect for the true caffeine connoisseurs
If you get the chance to spend a weekend, you might enjoy a pint in the Old Bell, president Clinton’s favourite pub in Harrogate and catch a show in the Harrogate Theatre.
