Discovering Kelham Island | Sheffield

November 6, 2017

In my last post about Sheffield I mentioned Kelham Island. As Sheffield is somewhere we visit quite frequently, I thought I would share our recent adventure to this up and coming part of Sheffield.

I first visited Kelham Island when I checked out Sheffield with Mercure Hotels. But I didn’t get a chance to take any snaps or write anything about this area. For those who know Manchester, Kelham Island is like Ancoats crossed with the Northern Quarter. Quirky beer taps, pizza places, tapas and thali cafes. It really is an interesting place.

This time I was there during the day, making photo opportunities a bit easier. We wandered around hoping the Kelham Island Museum was open, but it was a Sunday and it was shut. It’s on our list for the next visit though, with Dr W a metallurgist by trade, he’s interested in hearing about Kelham Island’s industrial past.

A bit peckish after our wandering about we headed to Craft and Dough. Dr W and I skipped the brunch menu in favour of trying their crisp sour dough based pizzas. They were perfect, wonderfully crispy and the spicy meat pizza was incredible. I’d highly recommend. We weren’t up for drinking, but their beer collection was pretty special too.

We carried on walking around after our food, wandering past some wonderful Sheffield Industrial Revolution graffiti. Our post-lunch wander took us to the Peddler Market, more specifically The Depot Bakery. Their donuts came highly recommended, so we couldn’t not check them out. I enjoyed an Apple Crumble Donut and Dr W the Chocolate Orange. Washed down with a cup of tea of course, the Yorkshire way!

I really enjoy exploring new places and I still have a few more places to check out in Kelham Island. The Fat Cat Brewery gets rave reviews, so it’s a must for our next visit. Have you been to Kelham Island? Or will you check it out on your next visit to Sheffield? Let me know in the comments,
