Top 5 Activities for a Fun Packed Day in Sheffield

If you’re spending a weekend in Sheffield, lucky you, you’re in for a treat. With so much to do throughout the day and night – including that deservedly massive nightlife reputation - you won’t have a minute to stop for a breather in Sheffield… not that you’d want to. Stag and hen party planners, Last Night of Freedom*, know the city like the backs of their hands, we have teamed up together to round up our top five recommended activities for a fun-packed day in the Yorkshire city.

It’s first for a reason; Sheffield nightlife will live up to the hype you’ve heard about and exceed all of your expectations. The centre of the city is largely pedestrianised and boasts well-populated bars, including the student-laden boozers on Ecclesall Road, the characterful, watering-hole lined streets of West Street, Carver Street and Division Street and plenty of minimalist bars on Glossop Road and Devonshire Street. If you’re after a good way to kick off any night, we can’t recommend a cocktail class enough; they break the ice and get everyone talking (and a bit tipsy) and will ensure that everyone leaves with a new skill under their belt. Bonus. There are plenty of venues which offer cocktail classes in Sheffield, but Las Iguanas and Revolution top the charts for us. As far as live music venues, you needn’t look any further than Leadmill, who has seen the likes of The Pogues, Coldplay, Muse, Snow Patrol, Arctic Monkeys, The Stone Roses, Kings of Leon, Kasabian and The Killers to name but a few, grace its famous stage.

A little bit of retail therapy is the perfect way to while away a few hours during the day on any fun-packed weekend – and when in Sheffield, you’ve got plenty of choice when it comes to places to splash the cash. Fargate and The Moor shopping precincts in the city centre are where you’ll find the biggest names in high street stores, as well as boutique and independent shops, and you’ve even got the whopping Meadowhall, with over 270 retail outlets, 37 restaurants and an 11 screen cinema – attracting over 30 million visitors annually. 

not get your sweet fix with a side of eye candy at the same time, on your Sheffield weekend? With this fabulous activity, you’ll have two sexy semi-naked chocolatiers at your beck and call, serving the drinks you’ve brought and helping you to pipe, dip and decorate your very own chocolate truffles. Drool…

Glow Sports 
You’ve got it glowin’ on… so why not try something totally unique on your weekend in Sheffield, like a glow sports session. We all love a bit of friendly competition but playing in the dark under UV lights really hikes the stakes up a notch. With this cool activity, you and your friends will have a choice of playing volleyball, dodgeball, netball, football or touch rugby, and will have all the neon clothing you could possibly need, all provided – making sure you shine out in the darkness. Plus, it’s a great way to work those hangovers off… 

Totally Wiped Out 
Whether you’re a massive fan of the classic BBC gameshow or you’re just up for a laugh with your mates – Totally Wiped Out is fast-paced and seriously competitive. This massive, outdoor, inflatable obstacle course has games that you’ve seen on TV, like weeper Arm, Tricky Trunks and Punch Wall – with the aim of the day quickly escalating into seeing how ridiculous you all look, slipping and sliding across the obstacle course. If you like the sound of this glorious city, or you just want to find out a little more about what it has to offer, check out LNOF Sheffield Weekends page for more information.
