Sheffield Round Walk

Book Tickets Online


The Sheffield Round Walk is a 15-mile loop from the urban to the rural at the southwestern edges of the city – taking in leafy parkland, woodland streams, and pretty suburbs.

The walk connects central Sheffield with its surrounding countryside, showcasing the natural beauty, greenery and wildlife that the city is lucky to have within its boundaries. It starts and ends at Endcliffe Park, a popular spot near the bustling independent cafes, pubs and shops of Ecclesall and Sharrow Vale Roads. From here the route continues alongside rivers – the Porter Brook and the Limb Brook; between trees at Ecclesall, Ladies Spring, Chancet and Brincliffe Edge Woods; past sights like 16th century Shepherd Wheel, Mayfield Alpacas, medieval Beauchief Abbey and Bishops’ House; and across Graves, Meersbrook and Chelsea Parks.

This guide splits the Round Walk into four linear sections, each with its own character – from the picturesque Porter Valley, well trodden by families and dog walkers, to the more urban vantage points of Gleadless Valley. Each section is round 3-4 miles, so you can tick off sections on different days if you want a more easy-going approach to the route. If you’re completing the walk in one go, be sure to wear sturdy walking shoes.

Look out for the Sheffield Round Walk acorn signs along the route, they'll help to keep you on track.
