Independent, Family Business
We are a family team at Wild & Westbrooke. The shop is run day to day by mother and daughter duo -Tanya & Laura. Ollie (Laura's partner), the third owner of Wild & Westbrooke, is a full time RAF firefighter but can be found in the shop in-between deployments. You may also find Winnie, our Cocker Spaniel, she can usually be spotted watching the passers by from the upstairs window above the shop.
Our family has been involved with the textile industry for many generations, homage to this can be seen throughout the shop - a favourite being a Singer sewing machine which belonged to Laura's grandma. With two tailors currently in the family it is never difficult to get any alterations taken care of.
We opened Wild & Westbrooke in October 2018 in our favourite city and hometown - York. After months of planning we finally found the ideal location, which is now our home on Lendal. We have York Minster around the corner and the Museum Gardens on our doorstep, perfect!
We specialise in British Heritage fashion - taking inspiration from living in the countryside. We carefully select the products we put in our shop with quality in mind and will always aim to offer the shopping experience to match. We stock a diverse range of brands and hope to have something to suit everybody. If you are looking for wellies to walk your dog or a stunning silk blouse, look no further. You can read more about what we stock here.
Whether you are just visiting York for the day or a local regular, we hope to welcome you to Wild & Westbrooke soon!
