This leaflet provides a guided walk of up to 2 hours around Sheffield’s city centre.
Sheffield is a civilised city and this walk shows something of how this has been achieved. You will see buildings and structures, various forms of transport (road, rail, tram and water) and the bridges they need.
You will not see hidden essentials like water supply and drainage but you will learn something about where they are. You will see different materials being used in different forms - all designed and constructed by engineers applying science and using engineering principles.
Among the 32 points of interest included in the walk are the Cathedral, the City and Town Halls, theatres, the Millennium Galleries, Sheffield Station and Passenger Transport Interchange, Lady’s Bridge, the Parkway Viaduct and Victoria Quays.
The whole of the route is suitable for both pushchairs and wheelchairs, and there are bus and tram stops along some sections of the route.
Please download our leaflet for more information including a location map. Hard copies are available from the Sheffield Visitor Information Office on Surrey Street.
