We recommend travelling here by public transport. Park Hill is conveniently located a short 5 – 10 minute walk through South Street Park from Sheffield railway station (which is also the nearest tram stop). Sheffield bus station is a similar distance across Sheaf Street, which can be crossed by footbridge. A number of bus services also stop locally on either Duke Street or Talbot Street. National Cycle Routes 6 and 627 pass close to Park Hill.
Step-free routes to Park Hill are marked on the map. Take care when crossing the tram lines. All access points to the estate are step-free with the exception of the western pedestrian path off Talbot Street.
The main drop off point is at the ’The Cut’ at the end of South Street. The northern end of South Street is a restricted zone, therefore no on-street parking is permitted.
Pay and display parking is available on site and can be accessed from Duke Street. Tickets can be purchased at a machine or in advance online.
Park Hill does not have stands available for you to secure your bicycle. The nearest options are at Sheffield Railway Station or the entrance to Ponds Forge International Sports Centre.

Park Hill is internationally recognised as a building of outstanding architectural merit and social interest with a Grade II* listing. Comprising nearly 1,000 flats and set on 32 acres, Park Hill is Europe’s largest listed building.
Park Hill has been used as a brutalist canvas for many forms of projection, painting, performance, cinematic and Street Art. Around the perimeter of the Estate, you can see vibrant installations by Kid Acne and Gary Hindley, as well as lesser-known street artists who use Park Hill as a medium for creative expression.
Stop for refreshments during your visit at the popular South Street Kitchen. Indoor and outdoor seating available.

Park Hill is a Grade II* listed building in Sheffield, United Kingdom. Built between 1957 and 1961, Park Hill attracts considerable architectural and social history interest. Following a period of decline and neglect, Park Hill is currently undergoing a striking redevelopment and entering a new phase in its history. Renovated, reimagined and reborn as a 21st Century urban community, Park Hill still radiates the enthusiasm and optimism of its original residents and visionary architects. #LoveParkHill
