Just south of the city centre, London Road (that in turn becomes Abbeydale Road) is one of the main arterial roads leading out of Sheffield towards the Peak District. The residential area around London Road, Abbeydale Road & Bramall Lane (Bramall Lane is just off London Road, famous for its football club!!!) is a real melting pot with many nationalities and socially mixed groups; families rub shoulders with young professionals and party minded students alike. All this leads to a vibrant buzzing multicultural community, with restaurants and takeaways from all over the world, traditional pubs, and plenty of local shops and amenities such as local Sainsbury’s and a late night pharmacy. City Centre & Collegiate Campus are within walking distance of London Road & Bramall Lane, and, whilst a bit further out, Abbeydale Road, known as the “Antique Quarter” for its eclectic mix of little shops, has easy access into the city centre and good local transport.
