Born in Sheffield, I have always had a lot of passion for the city and the long standing history. Working in the steel industry myself,  I realised where better to start a short term let, than the Historical Kelham Island. With its history, culture, amazing bars and restaurants, I was hoping people would fall in love with area as much as I have.  

THINGS TO DO IN SHEFFIELD...

Kelham Island Museum ...

Kelham Island Museum is the showcase of the steel city’s industrial story – a great day out full of information, perfect for Kids and Adults alike. The museum is also an event space for markets, festivals and weddings. The highlights I thought were the mighty steam engine, the description of the steel making process and the films, especially the one about the role of women in the industry. 


92 Burton Road...

92 Burton Road is a warehouse that has become a destination since Peddler's Market made it. There's more to this space than the monthly street food event. The warehouse is used as a venue for weddings, art exhibitions, photoshoots and film screenings. In the courtyard you'll find Depot Bakery, which is where our fabulous breakfast selections come from, Sheffield Cheesemasters, Russells Bicycle Shed and the Kelham Arcade.


Peddler...

This is a monthly Street Food Market with Craft Beer, Cocktails & Gin Bar - Dog Friendly. It’s a car park and warehouse with food sold on plates, also to note absolutely amazing. The monthly event attracts thousands over 2 days for the chance to taste some of the best street food in the country. The night market also includes craft beer from guest breweries, cocktail & prosecco bars, craft stalls, musicians as well as 92 Burton Road residents Kelham Arcade, The Depot Bakery & Nether Edge Pizza.


Battleaxe...

Axe Throwing. Fancy a change? How about axe throwing? Battleaxe provide a safe place for people to get into character and embrace their inner-viking. This is suitable for families, groups (inc. hen/stag parties, birthdays, work parties) or just something a bit different.

Eating out Sheffield...

Cutlery Works...

This has gone down in Sheffield as one of the best redevelopment stories in a while. It took a former cutlery factory in an up-and-coming area, and redesigned it into what it is today; a popular food hall in the Kelham Island area of Sheffield. All 14 of the independent food hall vendors are all totally unique. They were hand-chosen to give you a huge representation of the world’s food all in one place. Try a fragrant curry, a sumptuous brownie, genuine Canadian poutine, fresh sushi, cocktails, craft beer, perfectly-cooked fish and more, all in the same place. 


Dishi Vegan Asian Kitchen...

Fresh, authentic Asian cuisine. This is Kelham Island’s only eatery serving all Asian food all the time and Dishi happens to be 100% vegan and mostly gluten-free. Massaman curry, Sichuan Aubergine and Korean-Kimchi Cauliflower are current customer favourites.


Church: Temple of Fun...

Vegan food perfect for non-Vegans. Vegan or not, it doesn’t matter when you enter Church: Temple of Fun, the 100% Vegan establishment. Church is extra on every level, including the food, cooked by the highly acclaimed Make No Bones. Reading the menu looks pretty straight-forward, it tastes, looks, smells & feels like meat but no animals were sacrificed for your meal. Look out for their brunch specials on weekends.


The Milestone

The Milestone was the catalyst for the ‘new’ Kelham Island. Once a pub that sold pizza it has evolved into a gastro pub serving locally sourced, seasonal food. It’s a cosy and atmospheric restaurant with food you’d expect in a fine-dining experience.


Pina

Mexico via Yorkshire ft. Tequila, Tacos & Cocktails - Dog Friendly. Mexican food has never tasted so good, Pina are as authentic as they come when it comes to the classic taco. Hand-made onsite, these tasty bites which change seasonally fit perfectly with the laid back aesthetics that this former warehouse has been transformed into.

Places to Drink Sheffield...

The Fat Cat...

It's almost tradition to start your pub crawl at the Fat Cat. This well loved boozer is opposite the museum and next to the Kelham Island brewery, you're pretty much drinking from the source! The Pale Rider is a favourite for locals and Kelham Island tourists.


Kelham Island Brewery...

Kelham Island Brewery is the oldest brewery in Sheffield. The brewery began in the Fat Cat carpark back in 1990. Over the years the brewery has grown but it hasn’t gone far, next door in fact. The iconic brewery has influenced breweries throughout the world and Pale Rider is a beer many breweries have tried to emulate. Kelham Island wouldn’t be the same without Kelham Island Brewery.


Kelham Kitchen & Wine Bar...

It might be small but Kelham Kitchen & Wine Bar offers loads including an extensive range of gins and wine , all accompanied by a food menu that is perfect for sharing.


Nook The Bar...

Nook is a micro bar which prides it’s self on providing both high quality drinks and surroundings. Nook is situated on the first floor of Krynkl. Nook’s intimate space is warm and inviting with a range of ever changing bottles of ales and largers along side a range of high quality spirits and wines. They are a cashless business, card only.


The Ship Inn...

The Ship is a traditional pub with a modern twist. Embracing its past whilst updated decor gives it a fresh feel. The pub regularly hosts events including northern soul nights.
