Local History Walk

A sense of belonging

Sheffield is going to be your second home for months, or years, to come. Join us each week for an opportunity to explore more of the city and campus area, learn the fascinating stories behind the buildings and landscape, and make new friends along the way! The walks are led by Dr Tim Cooper, International Student Support Officer and a former teacher of History and Archaeology at the University.

Sheffield Xmas Markets

Upcoming walks

The final two walks before the Christmas break start by taking in old cutlery workshops, a converted fire station, a former water works HQ, the City Hall - and of course the Xmas Markets! And we end by remembering the dramatic events of two mid-December nights 77 years ago - the Sheffield Blitz.
