This place is pure Sheffield: one-off, surprising and a real hidden gem. Climb astride a small train and whizz round the track for one of the city's best family days out.

Mayfield Alpacas

Just on the edge of the Peak District is a field full of friendly alpacas, enjoying the views over the Porter Valley. You'll meet llamas, fluffy sheep, cheery Shetland ponies and micro-pigs too – prepare for a cuteness overload.

Sheffield Institute of Arts Gallery

Sheffield Hallam's art school gallery shows off students’ work and brings inspiring artists to the city, in a beautifully repurposed old post hall.

Sheffield Tap

Just off platform 1b at Sheffield station, the Tap is the best welcome you could possibly want to a city: a beautiful pub stocked with over 200 beers from around the world.

The Great Gatsby

A Devonshire Quarter favourite. DJs get this cocktail bar moving on weekends, while Shy Boy Cantina are in charge of the kitchen, serving up Mexican-inspired feasts unlike any others.

Bear Tree Records

Tucked away upstairs in the craft workshops of Orchard Square, Bear Tree Records was set up by Joe Blanchard – a familiar face to many who have flicked through various Sheffield vinyl racks over the years.

Oisoi

A welcoming, warmly lit dining room brimming with super fresh and delicious options inspired by Korea, South East Asia and China.

Sheffield General Cemetery

A hillside spot for both the living and the dead, containing stories of wars, epidemics, floods and more between 1836 and 1978. Today it's rich in history, wildlife and architecture.

Lucky Fox

Escape to Brooklyn via Sheffield.

Lantern Theatre

Sheffield's oldest and smallest (and most utterly charming) theatre is tucked away in the leafy suburb of Nether Edge. Go see anything you can here, even if it's just to get a peek inside.

Bloc Projects

An artist-led gallery that’s been a constantly shifting but always interesting figure in Sheffield’s contemporary art landscape for over fifteen years.

The Front Parlour

A real treasure trove on Sharrow Vale Road, whose little marks of quality and care set it apart from other vintage and antique shops. For fans of retro homeware, design and decor.

Graves Gallery

The Graves feels like a bit of a secret, tucked away above the Central Library. But with pieces by Bridget Riley, Marc Quinn, J.M.W. Turner, Grayson Perry and Sam Taylor-Wood, and brilliant temporary exhibitions, it's only right we let you in on it.

Norfolk Heritage Trail

Follow a trail through Sheffield history, taking in the Cholera Monument, the city's oldest public park, an incongruous ruin, a brutalist 20th-century social housing experiment, and some exceptional views.

A unique 18th-century scythe-making works, Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet is a piece of Sheffield’s history preserved. Explore the workers' cottages while the sounds of hammering and grinding float out of the working hand forge.

Cafe #9

Our idea of neighbourhood cafe perfection: excellent coffee, a wood-lined interior, lots of plants, chess, crosswords, ace music, warm cinnamon rolls, and friendly faces.

Alfred Denny Museum

Nowhere in Sheffield is so packed with curiosities of nature as the Alfred Denny. Here, primate skeletons grin from behind glass, amphibians are suspended in formaldehyde, and a cross-sectioned dolphin sits on the windowsill.

Shepherd Wheel

Shepherd Wheel is one of more than a hundred water-powered grinding wheels that were once in action in Sheffield. It's a great little stop on a Porter Valley walk, a few minutes from Endcliffe Park.

APG Works

Weston Park Museum

Trace Sheffield's social history and learn about life and nature in further flung parts of the world. The museum sits in one of the city's prettiest green spaces, next to blossom trees, a bandstand and pond.

Women of Steel

Linking their bronze arms in Barker's Pool, next to the City Hall, the Women of Steel are a powerful symbol of solidarity between women and a source of inspiration for generations to come.

One of Sheffield’s most incongruous buildings: a Tudor ruin, sitting next to a 20th-century residential estate. The hunting lodge used to be at the heart of a huge deer park and once held Mary Queen of Scots in picturesque captivity.

Roco

A mini cultural quarter, where studios, a cafe, shop and gallery are housed behind seven beautifully kept Georgian townhouse exteriors.

Tamper: Sellers Wheel

The Depot Bakery

Set in a charming courtyard at the Neepsend side of Kelham Island, the Depot has become much more than just a bakery – it also serves coffee roasted by the same company responsible for the beans at Tamper, and delicious pies.

Somewhere Else Coffee House

A family-run shop serving brilliant coffee from North Star Roasters in Leeds, and a wide selection of teas from Sheffield-based Birdhouse Tea Co. It may be apart from the city centre hum, but that is perhaps what makes it most worth the walk.

Patoo

After a busy week, nothing beats a Friday night feast in Patoo. We always order the same thing: gung ma noa and pla choo-chee, and, of course, a round of Singha beers.

The Grind Cafe

While away the morning with a paper and an excellent coffee, pull up a chair at one of the thick wooden tables at lunchtime, and let this charming Kelham Island gastro-cafe lift your spirits during the daily grind.

The Gardeners Rest

Sheffield's first community-owned pub, and one of its few riverside drinking holes. The Gardeners has it all: excellent local beer, bar billiards, Tunnock's teacakes, and one of the best beer gardens in the city.

Concrete, dramatic and brutalist, this electricity substation – just like Park Hill – has split public opinion since it was built in the 60s. See which camp you fall into: the lovers or the haters.

Park Hill

A curtain of concrete sitting above Sheffield station, Park Hill is brutalist, characterful, and divisive. It was a pioneer of postwar social housing, and its original utopian vision is now being reconfigured for the 21st century.
