GO Shopping in Sheffield

Shopping in Sheffield As the UK’s fourth largest city Sheffield has plenty to offer residents and visitors, and if it’s shopping that you want this city is sure to satisfy. Whether you stay in the city centre or venture further afield there are plenty of opportunities for you to relieve yourself of your cash.

Shopping in Sheffield city centre will provide you with a great mix of department stores and high street regulars, as well as some alternative purchasing options. The main shopping areas around Fargate [map] and The Moor [map] are pedestrianised so you don’t need to worry about traffic as you dive from shop to shop. As a rough guide head to Fargate if you have a passion for fashion and to The Moor if you have a variety of shopping needs, as this is where you’ll find department stores and discount shops. However, Fargate also has some specialist markets if you’re looking for something a little… well special.

Just off Fargate you’ll find rich pickings in Orchard Square [map]. This is an award-winning part of the city that brings together popular UK stores with independent outlets. If you’re unsure whether you’re in the right place, just keep an eye out for the square’s animated clock.

For a refreshing change from the norm check out what’s on Ecclesall Road [map]. Located to the south of the city centre, you’ll find distinctive shops that sell furnishings for your home, your body and your friends. There are also some antique shops here, however Sheffield does have its own dedicated Antiques Quarter [map] along Abbeydale Road if you are looking for something in particular. While for more contemporary items for your home you could try West Street [map].

For shopping chic in the heart of the city head to the Devonshire Quarter [map], close to the City Hall to the west of the centre. As well as a vibrant mix of independent stores that sell everything from fledging designer fashions to retro records, you’ll also find trendy café bars in this, the coolest part of town. Here, you’ll also find The Forum [map], a converted warehouse that is home to the arty and the offbeat.

Of course, if you’re visiting Sheffield and want to take a souvenir of the city home with you then why not opt for some Sheffield steel. The area is synonymous with steel as Sheffield was once the world’s largest producer of steel. There are several shops in the town centre where you can buy knives, cutlery or other steel items to give as gifts or take home as memories of your time in Sheffield, including Don Alexander [map] on Ecclesall Road, Osbourne Silversmiths [map] on Solly Street, Rivelin Cutlery [map] on Holme Lane and Sheffield Scene [map] on Surrey Street.

If you prefer to purchase under the roof of a shopping centre then Sheffield has one of the best in the UK. Meadowhall [map] has nearly 300 shops in one convenient location that’s easy to get to from the city centre by car or using the city’s public transport. A smaller version can be found at Crystal Peaks Centre [map], which has plenty of shops and a 10-screen cinema.
