Walk the Streets in the Sky – Scheduled tours of Park Hill
Saturday, 6th April 2024 - Saturday, 31st August 2024
Park Hill has been a visible landmark on the Sheffield skyline for over 60 years. It is considered of international importance due to being the first built example of external access decks (known as Streets in the Sky) and was awarded Grade II* listing in 1998. There followed a regeneration scheme, the first phase being shortlisted for the Stirling prize for architecture in 2013, which continues today. It is also culturally prominent, having featured in film, tv, music, artworks and on stage.
Park Hill Residents’ Association invite you on this 90 minute, resident-led tour to walk along the Streets in the Sky, exploring the 3 stages of its redevelopment and seeing how they differ. You will learn about the history of Park Hill, its celebrated (and lesser known) architectural details and gain an insight into life here today. Outside the building, you will enjoy our courtyard gardens in bloom and find out about the sculpture, mosaics and street art around the estate. And there will be plenty of opportunities to take in the expansive views so remember to bring your camera as well as your head for heights!
Tours run every Saturday between April and August at 10:30 and 13:30. There are also evening tours on the third Thursday of each month at 18:00. Please see our booking site for full details.
