Happy hares, flowery fairies, and a pony with a pink tutu. Take the train to Chapeltown’s centrally-sited railway station. Descend the steps straight into a hundred shops, a weekend market, and the bustling heart of Sheffield’s undiscovered northernly neighbourhood.
You’ll find many Sheffield stalwarts here. Drop into Beres or Crawshaws for a snack that will leave you thankful the three main shopping streets are all on the level. Alternatively, sit down for a more formal feast. Try Come a Casa, the district’s newest Mediterranean fusion restaurant. For a Traditional respite from summer sun, and a warm welcome from winter chills, The Commercial, known to all as The Commie, is just one of Chapeltown’s historic inns.
Sign up for sewing at the unique Happy Hare, where you can make and find fabric fashioned crafts to cherish forever. Take a blossoming keepsake from Ooops-a-Daisy, home of the flowery fairy mural. Satisfy sugary cravings at Candy Kabin or Sweettreat UK. Pamper yourself at some sumptuous salon, or make yourself some jewellery at Lillybank Silver. And they are made for walking, so keep your feet happy at Chapeltown Foot Clinic. As for that adorned pony - well, this is the home of Sheffield’s Showmen, so prepare to be taken for a Chapeltown ride, in all the best possible ways.
