City of Sheffield walk
Victorian industrial heritage on the edge of the Peak District
8.0 km (5.0 mi), with 144/146m cumulative ascent/descent. For a shorter or longer walk, see below Walk Options.
2 out of 10, with 1 ¾ hours walking time.
This route leads through the centre of Sheffield – the self-proclaimed ‘Steel City’. It is the largest city in South Yorkshire, known both for its history at the heart of a steel and cutlery-based industrialisation and for being one of the greenest cities in the country, right on the fringes of – and partly in – the Peak District.
Bus and Tram stops are never far from the route to enable shorter walks.
