Sheffield Walking Tours


Welcome to Sheffield City Walking Tours

Please note. All tours are postponed until further notice

I’m Marcus Newton and I offer interesting, fun and informative walking tours of Sheffield and its surrounding area. I have improved my tour to include suggestions from customers, making it suitable for people of all ages and wheel chair users, revising the route so my tour does not overun past 90 minutes and including (when available) visits to Sheffield’s twin Cathedrals.

I offer a concise 90 minute guided walking tour of Sheffield City centre, which currently costs £5 per adult or child (cash sales only) and departs at 10:30am from the Winter Garden Surrey Street entrance steps (next to the Sheffield BID shop and close by in the Winter Garden are the Sheffield Makers shop and Zoobys Cafe), please see my contact and tour location page on this website).

On my tour I take you on a leisurely journey through the 900 years of the history of Sheffield, from the medieval to the twenty first century. You see top visitor attractions including the Town and City Halls, the hidden gems of Sheffield and when available you visit the twin Cathedrals. My tour is mostly on the level, taken at an easy going pace, is suitable for people of all ages and is wheel chair accessible.

To help you get the best from your visit, I offer advise on the best places to go after my tour finishes at around noon. I tell you about museums, theatres, music venues, cinemas, walking, parks and gardens, sports attractions, shopping and places to eat and drink,
