Great to walk through here. There was some art exhibitions on when went, which were very interesting. All free too! There are also some nice stalls selling gifts, which are worth a look. Plus, some little actual shops too

You can walk around the city centre but there are other attractions a little way out from the city centre, Ecclesall Road area for instance. Lots of places to eat and drink there. Kelham Island area also worth a visit. Easy... More
