They are both easy to reach by public transport.  Supertram stops in front of the cathedral and many buses stop in the Church Street, High Street, Arundel Gate areas.

The Travel South Yorkshire  web site has details of all bus and tram services and a good door-to-door journey planner, you can use a postcode or address to define your locations.  Alternatively call 01709 515151.

By Car: St James’ Street is approached off Church Lane via Town Head Street .  Use the ring road to reach the Broad Lane, Tenter Street area.  See the purple arrows on the map below.

There is limited on-street car parking on St James’ Street (including disabled bays) and some nearby streets.

The 2019-20 Sheffield City Council on-street charges in the city centre zone 1 are:

Mon-Sat (0800-2030) £1.30 per 30 min

Mon-Sat (1630-2030) = £2 (or £1.30 for 1 hr)

Sun (0800-2030) = £2 all day

Parking machines continue to accept cash, but additional facilities to pay by chip and pin or contactless cashless payments are available.  You can also pay by phone.

Details can be found on the council website, www.sheffield.gov.uk/parking including information on the cash-less payment options.

The parkopedia website allows you to search for a variety of on and off street car parks near many locations, and includes route finding.

Please note: many city centre streets are one way or restricted for ordinary traffic.

Beware - Although some computer and Sat-nav systems are accurate in Sheffield some route finding systems do NOT map road restrictions correctly and may give  false routes!  The parkopedia route finding seems to be accurate.

If you are not familiar with the city centre you may wish to consider using public transport.  For those coming from out of town there are Park and Ride facilities at the supertram stops at Meadowhall, Halfway, Nunnery Square and Middlewood.  TravelSouthYorkshire has a useful live journey information for all transport modes.

Walkit is an urban walking route planner which you may find useful.
