Walking in Sheffield: The Best Parks and Green Spaces In and Out Of The City

Walking in Sheffield: The Best Parks and Green Spaces In and Out Of The City

One of the best things about Sheffield is how close you are to the Peak District and surrounding green areas. It’s home to some of the best walks in the UK which is how our team love to spend their weekend! Andy, our Remade Designer and Brand Manager loves to run the Yorkshire three peaks on a casual Sunday. Check out our favourite green spaces! 

Circular route around Damflask Reservoir – Bradfield Walkers are Welcome

Damflask Reservoir 

Five miles west of Sheffield city centre, you’ll find Damflask Reservoir close by to the village of Low Bradfield. We love this one at sunset in summer or for a Sunday stroll with a flask. Enjoy the breathtaking views by the waterside.

The Barn at Whirlow - Whirlow Hall Farm

Whirlow Hall Farm Trust

Whirlow Hall Farm is a fully-functioning working farm spanning 138 acres with a variety of livestock including sheep, cows and more! We love a little wander around and then enjoying a sit down at their pub!

Ecclesall Woods

A gorgeous little woodland between Abbeydale Road South and Ecclesall in Sheffield, any time of year we love this one, as the trees turn auburn or when the bluebless start appearing. You can hop on a 30 minute tram to easily escape the city.

A small car journey away from the city centre is Forge Dam, a cute little park and garden with cafe and Dam to walk around and enjoy, all year round.

Weston Park 

West of Sheffield’s city centre is Weston Park, a lovely walk to enjoy feeding the ducks. We recommend you grab a sandwich and coffee at Ambulo and have a walk around the Millennium Gallery.

Endcliffe Park 

Get your 10,000 steps in with a little route from Endcliffe Park to Forge Dam cafe and back, treating yourself to a little coffee and cake at your halfway stop. Expect parkland and woodland, perfect for the whole family or for a walk on your ones.

Stanage Edge 

Within the peak district, Stanage Edge, is a right spot for views of Yorkshire! We recommend taking a little picnic at sunset, or even braving the sunrise walk. Not so much fun in foggy weather. Climbers of Sheffield, hit up stanage for a varying level of climbs, don’t forget your safety gear as there are some high ones to be scaled.

Win Hill 

Win Hill is a circular walk route with a steady climb through forest, to the summit of 462m for incredible views! Also passing through the Ladybower plug holes. It is a bit of a killer, not to be tackled on a hangover but definitely worth it! Claire, on our sales team, loves this one at sunrise.

Mam Tor  

One of three of the Yorkshire Three Peaks. A classic spot for Sheffield walkers, if you start with any peaks in Yorkshire, make it this one. Take a little packed lunch and flask for a cuppa at the top and watch Yorkshire go by. When you reach the top it feels like you’re looking down on a toy world with trains passing by.

The River Rivelin 

Did you know if you spend 30 minutes per day by water it’ll boost your serotonin levels. This one is great for that. A little nature walk by a river with stepping stones, bridges to cross and various routes to choose from to make the walk as long or as short as you desire.

Chatsworth House 

Chatsworth House is a must visit, gorgeous historic stately home with 105 acres of surrounding gardens. Explore inside and outside the house and grab a coffee in the cute cafe. It’s a winner for a little trip out of the city, and easily accessible as you can catch the bus from Sheffield's bus station.

Barbrook Stone Circle 

Barbrook Stone Circle is ideal in summer when the Sheffield city heat gets too much. Escape for a spot of nature swimming and padding. Definitely take a flask and a towel to make the most of it. 

Holmesfield, Dronfield DE45 1PQ Get Directions

City Gardens 

Three free little spots within the city to escape into nature. Peace, Botanical and Winter Gardens are a must visit. All central and close together for a nice mooch in between running errands and vintage shopping (of course).
