The Full Monty: 23 must-do things in Sheffield
Sample a Peddler
One of the biggest events on the city’s social calendar is Peddler Night Market. The event takes place on the first weekend of every month at 92 Burton Road – an events space bang in the middle of Kelham Island. Naturally, they’ve had to adapt considerably to stay in line with Covid-19 safety guidelines, but you can still enjoy live music, art, cocktails and a truly enviable selection of street food from around the world.
If you’re looking for new threads at affordable prices, you’ll find some of the finest vintage clothing stores up north in town centre. Within a short walk of each other you’ll find Freshman’s (Carver Street), Cow (West Street), Mooch (Division Street), and R.A.G Vintage (Charles Street) – head down for a browse and you might find something special.
Hit the streets
Dotted in and around the city centre you’ll find some incredible street art from renowned artists such as Pleghm, Kid Acne, Faunographic, Pete McKee and many, many more. In fact, there are literally hundreds dotted around. Luckily, streetartsheffield.com have done a good job of mapping over 250 locations and allowing you to browse each one by area. God bless ‘em.
Grab a view
As your calves will soon discover, Sheff is a city of many, many hills. As well as developing the cardiovascular endurance of an Olympic athlete in no time, another benefit to the undulating terrain means your spoilt for view spots. Grab a few pals, maybe a couple of tinnies (be sure to recycle), and admire it in all its glory from the Ampitheatre behind the station, Norfolk Heritage, Meersbrook Park or Parkwood Springs.
