Parking in Sheffield

The ‘Steel City’ has long been the north’s industrial epicentre. Founded on heavy industry but today more likely to house high-tech start-ups rather than steel foundries, the city is going through a period of economic growth and development. Beyond its municipal borders is the glorious countryside of the Pennines, and the city is a key starting point for visitors who want to explore the great outdoors of Yorkshire. Car parks in Sheffield are plentiful, with NCP offering eight options clustered around the city, the majority with the option of pre-bookable spaces.

Points of interest

From the Victorian grandeur of its town hall to the elegance of the Botanical gardens, Sheffield has a surprising amount for visitors to see and do. It even has its own ‘Sheffield Eye’, a huge Ferris wheel that gives you a fabulous view of the city. Most of the municipal buildings such as the library are packed around Tudor Square, although if you want to learn more about the city’s history then there are plenty of heritage walks and guided tours on offer. Sheffield car parks are all centrally located, and you can choose from the wonderfully named Blonk Street car park to the north of Park Square, to the convenience of Sidney Street and Wellington Street car parks right in the heart of the city.

Attraction & event parking in Sheffield

Sheffield Castle Square

There is no longer a castle near Castle Square, although for centuries it was the defended heart of the city, and an important trading centre. Markets have been held here since 1296, and the square was known locally as ‘The Shambles’ for centuries. Nearby Arundel Gate car park offers pre-bookable spaces if you want to secure a parking spot in the very heart of the city without worrying about finding street parking.

O2 Academy

One of the most popular music venues in the region, the O2 Academy hosts international artists, singers, musicians and performers all year round. It’s a popular stopping point for most A-list tours, and during major concerts parking in Sheffield around the Academy can be challenging. Pre-book a space at the nearby Arundel Gate car park and you’re just a few steps from the venue’s foyer.​


Peace Gardens

A beautifully maintained and surprisingly small spot that’s tucked away in between modern and Victorian municipal buildings, the Peace Gardens are a popular spot with workers and visitors all year round. During the summer the rising and falling fountains put on a magnificent display, and while it may be compact, this modern park offers a respite during a busy day. Park at nearby Wellington Street car park for easy access to the gardens and the town hall.

Sheffield -Cathedral-City-Attraction

Sheffield Cathedral

The cathedral is Sheffield’s religious heart, and is a magnificent building that has grown up organically over the centuries. The spot has been a religious location since the 9th century, while the cathedral in its current form developed between the 18th and 20th centuries. One of its most striking features is the Lantern Tower, a modern stained glass construction that bathes the chapel below in a rainbow of colours. Park at Campo Lane or Heartshead Square car parks and you’re just a few minutes’ walk away.


Ponds Forge International Sports Centre

This exceptional sports facility is one of the largest in the region and houses an Olympic-size swimming pool and seating for 2,600 spectators. It’s also home to Europe's deepest diving pool at 5.85 metres, and regularly hosts international competitions and events. When not being used by the world’s elite athletes, the centre welcomes sport-loving visitors of all ages. For the kids, there’s water slides and plenty of fun, while gym bunnies have fully fitted fitness centres where they can work up a sweat. It’s just a short walk from the Arundel Gate car park, where you’ll find pre-bookable spaces and the ability to buy season tickets if you’re a regular visitor to the Centre.

Sheffield Hallam University

Split across two campuses (one in the city centre and one a couple of miles to the southwest), Sheffield Hallam University is a well respected establishment that has no fewer than 30 research centres, including biotechnology, health and social care, engineering and education. If you’re visiting the City Campus near the train station then parking in Sheffield is available at the nearby Sidney Street and Furnival Gate car parks, both offering pre-bookable spaces and season ticket availability.

The Crucible

For anyone who loves snooker, Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre is the spiritual home of the game. For decades it has welcomed some of the world’s greatest snooker stars, as well as being an important theatrical venue that puts on performances ranging from Shakespeare to Pinter. Park at Arundel Gate car park and be in your seat in time for the first break of the evening session, or for curtain up.
