This is only a police box but is nice to have a photo taken. There is a little sign which tells you a little about it. Also, after all these years it os still in good condition.

Police Box has been kept as a symbol how police worked in the past. Iconic small symbol of Sheffield next to Town Hall. There is a short description attached to the box explaining the purpose and history of them.

Nestled in next to the town hall this old police box harps back to a bygone age. Not much to see, just a plaque on the outside. You do always get the nagging feeling it's the wrong colour...

I have known this landmark for over 60 years and it still fascinates me. Would love to go inside. Hope it remains for another 60 years

Lovely to just come upon this bit of the old world before mobile phones. Well preserved and worth a quick look.

My little boy loved seeing the police box, he was the first to spot it, and carried on shouting ‘nee nar’ until I took him up to it!

Calling this a tourist sight is a bit far fetched, but Sheffield isn't exactly a city built for tourism. The box certainly has historical significance, more so to the locals than to tourists. It isn't out of the way, so you might as well stop...More

I bought a book on Old Sheffield & this Police Box is mentioned in detail. We were unable to access the interior but the box is well maintained. There were 120 of these boxes & this is the only one that remains. They were the...More
