Travel and directions


Getting around on foot

Sheffield is a very pedestrian-friendly city, and you'll find the train station, most hotels, and the course locations are all within walking distance of each other.

The University's Maps and Travel pages can help you to find the course and conference locations, with printable maps of Sheffield city centre.

Sheffield also has several convenient transportation options:


The Sheffield Supertram crosses through the heart of the city, and the Blue Tram Line stops at the Sheffield Station (back entrance) near the Sir Robert Hadfield Building (West Street stop). The Supertram also stops at the Meadowhall Interchange, where there is a Park & Ride service. You do not need a ticket before you enter the Supertram; there is a controller inside of each tram to collect the fare (day tickets are available).


Sheffield has several taxi stands throughout the city; there is a taxi stand at the front entrance of the train station and many other places in the city centre. Taxis can also be reserved with City Taxi Sheffield (+44 114 239 3939) or another taxi company. If you are going to the Sir Robert Hadfield building, it is located at the intersection of Portobello and Orange Streets, off West Street - give your driver the postcode S1 3JD.


Sheffield has a number of bus services that travel through the city centre and the suburbs. 


Sheffield has limited parking options; when booking your hotel, consider their parking possibilities and also consider walking or using public transportation to get around - it may be easier than you think.

There are a few options for parking near Sir Robert Hadfield Building, e.g. Q-Park Rockingham Street (public parking garage) or the University parking services.
