Driving in and around Sheffield


With the Peak District to the west and the Lincolnshire Wolds to the far east, it’s no surprise that Sheffield is a ideally located for exploring these areas of beauty.

If you’re wanting to pack up your hire car and go exploring the Peak District, you’ll need to take the A621 southbound. But, if you’re looking to head east, you’ll need to travel via the A1(M) and the M18 to reach the Lincolnshire Wolds – it takes around one and 40 minutes to get there from the heart Sheffield. You may even want to consider visiting both if you have time.

If you’re heading to Sheffield for a business trip or relaxing break, there are a number of scenic drives you may like to try out. The Derwent Dams, via the A57, is one of the most popular. Vast swathes of serene moorland give way to babbling streams and thick woodland as the reservoirs of Ladybower, Derwent and Howden roll by your windows. Park up at King’s Tree to marvel at the astounding view below.

If you’re wanting to experience more of the incredible Yorkshire region, major cities like Leeds and York can be reached by following the M1 northbound; Hull can be reach by following the M18 to the east and to the northwest along the A629 is Huddersfield.

Driving in and around Sheffield is, like driving across the UK as a whole, a pleasurable experience. Speed limits on British roads are 60mph on single-carriageways and 70mph on dual-carriageways. If you’re driving through built-up areas, you will most likely be driving to a limit as low as 30 or 20 mph.

A quick guide to Sheffield


Sheffield is a colourful mix of sporting passion, heavy industry, a homespun music scene and innovative cultural endeavours. Here are a few more reasons this fantastic South Yorkshire city is well worth a visit.

Steeped in history

If you’re looking for a dose of compelling history in a city where the people are proud of their heritage, you’ve come to the right place. Sheffield is full of venues that celebrate the stories that make it great and invite visitors to lose themselves in the past.

Take, for example, the Kelham Island Museum, which is situated in the city’s oldest industrial district on a 900-year-old manmade island. Opened in 1982 to tell Sheffield’s important industrial story, Kelham Island Museum is a treasure trove of exhibits from the Victorian times, through the heat of the Industrial Revolution to today.

If truly immersing yourself in lives of times gone by appeals, you should also visit Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet. A ‘living’ museum that houses Grade I and II listed buildings. This extraordinary place explores the domestic side of the Industrial Revolution, as well as the hard labour itself.

The green spaces

Local people are understandably proud of Sheffield’s inner city gardens and parklands. The city is one of the UK’s greenest and the sheer number of trees planted here is something visitors often comment on.

Gardeners, or those who simply enjoy the serenity of green spaces, should head to Sheffield Botanical Gardens, which opened in 1836 on what was once farmland. As well as being a place for the cultivation of weird and wonderful plants from around the globe, the gardens also provide a center for theatrical and musical performances, as well as visual art events and floral festivals.

Another horticultural attraction that has put Sheffield on the map for green-fingered folk is the award-winning Winter Garden, which stands by the city’s Peace Garden near the center of town. Home to a staggering 2,500 varieties of plant from around the world, this temperate glasshouse is one of the country’s largest and the perfect place to escape the clamor of city life for a short time.

The shopping and the eating

There’s an atmosphere of fun and possibility about this city that’s hard to resist. Those searching for great places to eat and drink won’t need to look far. From tasty street food to independent delis selling locally sourced preserves, pastries and produce, through to upmarket restaurants for the romantically inclined, Sheffield has it all.

Shoppers too will find much to tempt them. Head west from the city center to the Devonshire Quarter. This is a sophisticated area packed with award-winning boutiques and fashionable faces.

The great outdoors

The Peak District National Park covers around 555 square miles, stretching from Holmfirth in the north, to Matlock and Leek in the south, and Stockport to the west. Sheffield lies on the eastern border of the park, close to Derwent Water, one of the area’s prize attractions.

The Upper Derwent Visitor Centre is around 13 miles from Sheffield and a great place from which to discover the area, whether you’re into hiking, walking, water sports or wildlife watching.
