The Artful Guide to Shopping in Sheffield
Meadowhall is one of those places that divides opinion. People either love it or hate it. Either way, it has an awesome collection of shops all under one roof. Virtually every brand you could ever want is available here. Easily reached from the city centre via a yellow route tram, Meadowhall is well worth visiting if you’re in the mood for an all-out shop-till-you-drop experience. Students may be especially interested in the branch of H&M, always good for cheap, fashionable bargains!

Situated parallel to West Street, the Devonshire Quarter plays natural home to Sheffield’s ultra-trendy. Frequented by young, hip, fashion-conscious professionals, Devonshire Street has an impressive array of shops including Ark, Freshman’s Boutique, G-Star and Garage. The impressive West One complex provides luxury, modern city living and also houses several shops and restaurants. At night, the area is a trendier (and more expensive) version of West Street, with bars such as The Forum and the Common Room open late into the night.
In a way, Ecclesall Road is similar to the Devonshire Quarter. It has a laid-back, cosmopolitan feel, completed by its leafy appearance and café’s, which in summer have outdoor tables. Popular with students of both universities, Ecclesall road has pretty much everything anyone could ever need within a small area, from fashionable shops such as Fatface to the obligatory Tesco’s, Pizza Hut and Blockbuster video. Shopping aside, ‘Eccy road’ is especially good for those seeking a good meal or a refreshing beverage. In particular, Yankees serves good, greasy all-American food, whilst sports fans may want to head down to Champs for beer and football in the Steel City’s best sports bar.
The City Centre
The city centre is where Sheffield’s big brand stores can be found. From John Lewis to Next, River Island, HMV and Republic, many of the large national chains have outlets here. Bargain hunters will be pleaded to find a large Primark, whilst those seeking a more cultural experience should spend an afternoon or two visiting the Cathedral, the Winter Gardens, The Millennium Galleries and the Peace Gardens. The city centre also regularly hosts market stalls, selling everything from local farm produce to European delicacies.
Heading away from the city centre at the bottom of Pinstone Street, The Moor is a cheap and cheerful alternative high street. Perfect for those on a tight budget, The Moor has two pounds stores and a range of other great value outlets. Whilst it may lack the charm of other areas of the city, it certainly is the cheapest place to find many household items in Sheffield!
