Developments in Sheffield City Centre – a Walking Tour

Saturday, 15th June 2024

10:00 am to 12:30 pm

Meet at the Heartspace Cafe Portobello St

£5 or free for Sheffield Civic Trust members

This walk, led by Jim Monach and Paul Bedwell of Sheffield Civic Trust, will view the developments in the City Centre which are part of the Heart of the City II project and also those which have featured in the Sheffield Design Awards (SDA) over recent years. You may see new features which might merit consideration in the SDA 2024 which are being prepared over the next few months, launching on May 23rd.

Meet in the Engineering Heartspace cafe, University of Sheffield, Portobello St. S1 4DE.

The walk will go downhill towards the City Centre taking in buildings and open spaces of particular interest; most will have figured in Sheffield Civic Trust’s Sheffield Design Awards at some time. There will be the opportunity to comment on places participants would like to see recognised in this year’s SDA.

The walk will finish at the Winter Garden, Surrey St. – recognised in 2022 with a Lifetime Achievement Award. There will be an opportunity to ask further questions and review the walk at refreshments nearby. The distance will probably be under 2 slow miles and would be suitable for wheelchair users confident on busy city streets.
