Located 1.5 miles to the north west of Sheffield city centre, Crookes is a small village with a big personality.

It’s popular among students, young professionals and families alike, thanks to its wide choice of housing and prices to suit most budgets. 

With buses taking you into the city centre and surrounding areas, you don’t need a car to get around. There are plenty of good schools to choose from in both Crookes and its southern neighbour Broomhall.

As for things to do, try Crookes Valley Park, The Ponderosa, and Rivelin Valley. There’s also Holly Hagg Community Farm, where you can meet the cutest alpacas and even take them on a walk. 

With traditional taverns, Italian restaurants, and coffee shops dotted around the town, there’s no shortage of places to get a bite to eat or meet your friends.
