Just around the corner from Regent Street is West Street, which is one of the main centres of student social activity. West Street is home to a wide variety of restaurants, cafes and bars, and is a popular meeting place for students. West Street is also linked by tram to Sheffield railway station and the huge shopping and entertainment centre, Meadowhall.
