Heeley is a convenient area for accessing the city centre, only a mile and a half away. It is surrounded by Sharrow to the West, Meersbrook and Woodseats to the South, Highfield to the North and Gleadless to the East. Compared to other areas in the south of the city, such as Nether Edge, Heeley is very affordable. The rental market in Heeley is increasingly active, particularly around London Road and Bramall Lane. Heeley has been overlooked by students in the past, who naturally migrate to the north of the city to find accommodation. But as rental prices soar in traditional “studenty” areas, convenient and more affordable neighbourhoods like Heeley are becoming more popular with students and young professionals. Small terraces and town houses are typical of the property in Heeley, making it popular with first time buyers.

Heeley Green has a small parade of shops with a decent sized Co-op, a Post Office, newsagents, takeaways (including a good chippie), a pharmacy and GP surgery. Heeley Retail Park on Chesterfield Road has Boots, Matalan, Pets at Home, Next Clearance and also a Virgin Active Health Club close by. There is also a huge B&Q store on Queens Road for all you DIY enthusiasts. Heeley has no shortage of old-man pubs, but the best in the area is the legendary Sheaf View, one of the finest real ale pubs in the city. For restaurants, your best bet is to head to near-by London Road where you’ll be spoilt for choice.

You’ll notice that Heeley is awash with Sheffield United fans due to its close proximity to Bramall Lane. This frequently grinds traffic to a halt on a Saturday afternoon! On the whole though, it takes around 15 minutes to get to town by car and bus numbers 33, 47 and 48 provide a regular service.

A trip to Heeley City Farm is a great way to occupy the kids for an afternoon. It’s a community led farm comprising of organic gardens, a lovely café and lots of farmyard animals. With plenty of activities and events going on, the farm is also home to the South Yorkshire Energy Centre, where you can find out about renewable energy, sustainable building materials and energy initiatives. The annual Heeley Festival brings the community together with music, stalls and family fun, clocking up over 10,000 visitors a time - it draws the crowds come rain or shine.

Heeley tends to attract a blend of laid back liberals with hippie tendencies and ‘Shameless’ types, so if you object to either of those, this is probably not the area for you!
