Victoria Quays

Historic Site/Structure, Museum/Heritage/Gallery/Visitor Centre


Victoria Quays is a large canal basin, close to Sheffield City Centre, that heads up the Sheffield and Tinsley Canal. Sheffield and Tinsley Canal celebrated its 200th Birthday in 2019.

Victoria Quays is the perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city centre and enjoy the water. The Quays gives you chance to sit and relax, grab a bite to eat or start your journey along the Canal. A range of events are hosted through out the year including the Sheffield Water Front Festival in September. Keep on the look out for any event details.  

Whether your walk, run or cycle explore the Sheffield and Tinsley Canal for Victoria Quay. You can follow the canal towpath to Meadowhall and beyond, with a number of tram stops along the way if you don’t want to make the 4-mile journey. The 4-mile path takes you through industry and rural areas with a number of locks and bridges on the way. Pass through Attercliffe, the Olympic Legacy Park and Tinsley Marina.

Enjoy the street art trail, a project in conjunction with Concrete Collective. The first phase of the project allowed local artists to have complete creativity and they have created 13 amazing murals on the waterway in Attercliffe for people to enjoy as they are walking by. More artwork will be coming in 2020 for everyone to enjoy.
