Sheffield Town Hall

Capture photos of the elegant façade and peruse the intriguing trinkets and treasures in this structure overlooking the Peace Gardens.

Sheffield Town Hall is a 19th-century building with majestic features and exhibits. It contains the offices of the city council and holds a collection of Sheffield’s renowned silverware. Gaze up at the clock tower that marks one of the city’s most prominent structures.

Admire the impressive façade, which is made from Stoke stone. Inspect the intricate carvings by British sculptor F. W. Pomeroy. Note how the friezes portray the industries of Sheffield. At a height of 200 feet (61 meters), this was the tallest structure in the city from its construction in 1896 until 1965, when it was surpassed by the Arts Tower.

The clock tower rises to a height of 210 feet (64 meters) and is topped by a statue of the Roman god of fire, Vulcan. Hear the hourly chime of the electronic bell system. Snap photos of your family standing by the water feature of the Peace Gardens in front of the Town Hall.

Enter the large building and admire the HMS Sheffield display on the way to the Main Entrance Hall. See the elegant marble staircase and a statue of the city’s first lord mayor. Peruse the four sections of the gallery and look through the collection of silverware.

The Lord Mayor’s Parlour contains some of the gifts given to the city, such as silver and porcelain. Browse the various paintings in this room and find portraits of former mayors in the antechamber.

Relax in the scenic and modern grounds of the Peace Gardens. Listen to the sound of water flowing from the plaza’s many fountains. The kids will love running around in the section that has intermittent jets of water.

The Sheffield Town Hall is on the northern side of the Peace Gardens in the heart of the city. Take a bus to a nearby stop or walk 10 minutes from the Sheffield Train Station. The site is near many of Sheffield’s most notable attractions, such as the Sheffield City Hall and the Millennium Gallery.
