Sheffield Transportation

by kimkellykari

Thanks for your help in locating a hotel. I did have one other questions, as we are leaning towards staying at the Hilton on 2 Funival Street. Can we walk from the train station to there with a couple pieces of luggage.

Thanks
Kim

Put Furnival Road (which is the address of the Hilton, assuming you mean the one on http://www1.hilton.com/en_US/hi/hotel/SZDSHHN-Hilton-Sheffield-hotel/index.do) into:

www.streetmap.co.uk

and click the 'street' button. Choose the Furnival Road in Sheffield S4, and you'll get a map showing you where the Hilton is in relation to the station, which is on Sheaf Street (scroll left and down). Quite some distance away, I think, but not an impossible walk.

Hi! The Hilton is on Furnival Road, which is in the Victoria Keys area. As the crow lies it's a short distance from the train station- However! It's not so easy to walk to carrying luggage, even if its a case on wheels. I'd advice getting a taxi from the station - it should cost less than a fiver. Have You contacted the hotel - there might be a shuttle mini bus/ reduced taxi rates.
Tel 0114 2525500 www.hilton.co.uk

The hotel is slightly 'off the beaten track' As far as I know there are no bus stops nearby, and it is quite a walk to the city centre, and probably not so good to be aiming back there on foot late at night, so You might end up getting a few taxis. I'll try and take a proper look this weekend for You.

More central are the Novotel, Grosvenor, Mercure St Pauls, Leopold, and Ibis.

I'll try and find out more -

Didn't You stay at the Leopold at Christmas then?

Best Wishes,
Sue

My friend in Sheffield says it's about a mile, but awkward because of the way the roads are...........lots of busy ones to cross. I'd get a taxi.

So once again we all rally around to find the answers to these questions about staying in Sheffield from Kimkellykari (Dec and Feb)and she doesn't wait for an answer - not checked in since Feb 22nd! I now know to wait for a few days after a newbie posting to see if they log on again - ie interested in getting a reply/ interested in vt etc. Apologies if there is a genuine reason why KKK hasn't logged in/responded to replies, but getting a bit p*$$£8 off with doing research for nowt!

Re: Sheffield Transportation

C'est la vie on VT!

But someone else might find the info useful..........VT threads do come up when one googles certain combinations.........so I don't really mind.

Travel Tips for Sheffield

by eurotravels

Visit the 'Lush' shop on the main high street (a few steps from Marks and Spencers).
I know it doesn't sound that exciting but you have to smell it to believe it ( and you often can about 100 metres away). They make lovely bath time goodies using natural fragrances and essential oils. They're not too expensive to treat yourself. If you have a bath at your accommodation go for the 'bath ballistics' and if you have a partner, go for the massage bars. Both are tons of fun and you'll smell great afterwards. www.lush.co.uk is the web site if you crave for more.

Packing List

by caprice4u2

Light weight bags but then again I would say that for any place, Sheffield though not as crime ridden as Manchester has its fair share of opportunists, so dont look too wide eyed and touristy... be sensible, blend in and dont expose expensive equipment etc, keep your mobile phone in your bag..etc don't forget those sensible shoes for a good ol' yorkshire hike ;-)
Warm clothes between August-ish and May-ish (the weather however is so unpredictable. If you are hiking etc, it stands to reason you need adequate footwear, thin layers, waterproofs etc, in meadowhall or indoor shopping, leave your coat, its hot, mad and exhausting in those hell holes :-) (Love shopping really, just not with the kids) The only real dangers in UK are the risk of a wasp/Bee sting in summer..so have handy some waspeze etc, the spiders are defenceless, dogs, not generally rabid (but of course be cautious, young people often have staffy bulls or similar as (thug) status symbols...wonderful dogs tho. Take your own plasters, lotions and potions, if you have an accident in a public place and they administer basic first aid, often they are not allowed to apply anything that you might react to.. obviously if its an emergency then the hospital is different.

Your knicked my old son !

I was quite surprised and delighted to come across the last remaining police box in Sheffield. It stands on Surrey street near the town hall.

There were once 120 Police boxes in Sheffield, and like elsewhere in the country they contained a telephone line to the main police station. They often had a light on them to signify that a call was waiting for a passing patrolling policeman. They could also be used in emergencies as a temporary 'lock up' for the local low-life before transportation could be organised to the slammer.

This 'green' box stands as an historical curiosity, although I suspect it might still be useful now and then - I wonder if the local police have the key still ?

Unfortunately unlike in 'Dr Who' the box does not flash and become an TARDIS. (Time and relative dimension in space). Dr who used a London police box, which was smaller and coloured dark blue.

The Rivelin

by suvanki

After walking, jogging, cycling, or just driving to this pub, you can enjoy a cool drink and/or a meal.
This is a traditional English pub, with a selection of beers, spirits and soft drinks.
There is a fairly extensive menu too.

I visited this hostelery on a Wednesday evening, after a pleasant walk.

Wednesday night is folk night. There was quite a sizeable gathering of singers and musicians assembled.

This pub also holds quiz nights.
