‘The Endcliffe neighbourhood is located on the south west side of Sheffield, home to the beautiful Endcliffe and Bingham parks and has an array of exciting places to eat, drink and shop. Endcliffe park opened its gates in 1887 in celebration of Queen Victoria’s Jubilee and is one of the hottest spots for family outings, parking it up with friends, it’s also a gateway to Sheffield’s Peak District National Park. If you fancy a drink or bite to eat, in the heart of the park is the iconic Endcliffe Park Cafe, open throughout the year and serves delicious, locally sourced food and Fairtrade teas and coffee.
If you’re making your way from Endcliffe Park up to the Peaks, there’s plenty to see and do on the way, such as taking a well-deserved pitstop and the Forge Dam Cafe. Or, further along the trail to the Peaks, you could spend the day visiting the hugely popular Mayfield Alpacas Animal Park, who offer a range of fun and educational events such as Alpaca Treks, feeding Meerkats and other animal experiences (IG, @mayfield_alpacas_animal_park).
Just a short walk from the park, you’ll find Hunters Bar, Ecclesall Road and Sharrow Vale on its doorstep. One of my favourite things to do on the weekend is to wander through the local area as there are so many unique and independent shops and places to discover. Anything you could want or need; you will be able to find here. One of my favourites (even just to window shop) is Pete McKee’s art gallery (IG, @petemckee), which sees visitors from all over the world. If you don’t know who Pete McKee is, you should get to know! Born and bred in Sheffield, Pete McKee is world renowned for his unique illustrations that embody Sheffield’s rich history and culture.
In the evenings, there’s plentiful bars and restaurants to choose from; I’m still working my way to visit them all after living in the area for nearly five years! However, one place I find myself visiting again, and again… is The Lescar pub, located in Sharrow Vale (IG, @thelescar). The interior design is traditional with modern features, in the winter their open fire heats the entire pub which makes it the perfect cosy spot to meet up with friends and family. In the summer, there is a gorgeous courtyard area where you can enjoy your food and drinks in the glorious Sheffield sun. They also host weekly live music and comedy performances, which is a great opportunity to support and check out the local talent.
For these reasons to name a few… the Endcliffe neighbourhood is one of the most sought-after areas to live in Sheffield. With its close proximity to both Universities, being in the catchment area for some of Sheffield’s best schools and City centre, it’s the idyllic location, whether you're a student, young professional, couple or family.’
