Fargate, in the heart of the city, is home to many high-street fashion chains. It’s a pedestrian-only road so have a pleasant stroll, enjoy the view of the cathedral and bag a bargain. Near here is Barker’s Pool, a spacious outdoor area with fountains, which is also home to Sheffield’s branch of John Lewis. There are also several characterful shops tucked away in the nearby lanes that are well worth seeking out. 70 Pinstone Street is the city’s only independent book and magazine store – bibliophiles will lose hours browsing its colourful shelves. Bear Tree Records is a must for all those in love with vinyl. The Moor Market, also in the city centre, has almost 200 stalls selling everything from fruit and veg to clothes. You can also by organic food here and there are several local artisan and craft stalls.
