Shopping in Sheffield City Centre
Sheffield's City Centre is in the midst of change. Visitors to the city won’t be able to miss the numerous cranes towering above as various developments, including a brand new Retail Quarter, begin to take shape.
Some of the work has already been done- The Moor shopping precinct is a shiny new stretch of shops, complete with a new cinema and complex of restaurants. At the end sits the distinctive Moor Market, a modern, indoor farmers' market that sells organic meat, fruit and vegetables and artisan products across an array of stalls.
The city’s main shopping high street, Fargate sits just aside of the Town Hall, in the attractive heart of the city, where you’ll find a host of familiar big name shops such as Marks & Spencer and John Lewis.
Beyond the familiar chains though, it’s worth venturing of the beaten track to seek out Sheffield’s independent scene. Here you’ll find indie shops dedicated to books, plants, unusual gifts and records, others where local makers and designers show off their wares. The Millennium Gallery Shop is particularly well stocked in unique Sheffield-made gifts.
Division Street is a hot-spot of designer boutiques and vintage shops that also happens to boast some of the best bars in the city centre. The Forum is a perfect example as it combines both, with a small arcade of shops spilling into a vibrant bar.
