Ecclesall Road stretches for nearly three miles and is well known for its vast range of restaurants, bars, cafés and shops and boutiques. Sharrowvale Road is quieter, with more of a village atmosphere, where good local shops, delis and traditional pubs share the tree lined residential streets. Ecclesall Road has some of Sheffield’s very best green spaces with the Botanical Gardens and Endcliffe Park nearby. The parks regularly host a great range of special events including circuses, fairs and openair concerts throughout the summer.
