Sheffield is an old industrial city in South Yorkshire previously a steel city, and still produces a small amount of steel.
There are 2 areas in Sheffield to visit apart from the museums. If either your into Antiques or into vintage living.
There is the Antique Quarter, that covers the areas of Abbeydale, London Road, Heeley Bottom, south of the city. Drew Pritchard , the antique dealer as frequented this area, to find objects to restore.
At Heeley Retail Park there is the Sheffield Auction Gallery. On Broadfied Road the Sheffield Antiques Centre and nearby the Sheffield Antiques Emporium, on Queens Road is the Heeley Bank Antiques Centre with it’s own tea room.
There are a scattering of smaller antique shops in the area of London Road and Abbeydale.
If you want something to eat and drink theres a cafe in the Hagglers corner,across from Heeley Bank Antiques Centre. Or if you like the 60s vibe there is the Okeh Cafe on Abbeydale Road. Further down Abbeydale Road there are 3 vintage tearooms for afternoon tea:- Jamiesons, Tea with Percie, and The Vintage Tearooms.
