Could someone tell me what the nice areas to live in Sheffield are and the ones to avoid? Thanks

What's your budget? The general consensus among the young professional crowd (cue stone throwing) is from 6 to 10 o'clock if you see Sheffield as a clock face. Basically, the south-west of the city, starting at Meersbrook and ending at Walkley.

Thanks for your reply. It's a low budget, probably need to rent for a while until I get my money through, then I've got a £50,000 deposit

I’ve been renting in Nether Edge for last year and have bought a house in the area just recently. I love the area. Nice village feel and just a mile or two from the city. Good pubs and cafes within walking distance. £50k deposit will get you a decent place here

Totley, Ecclesall, Whirlow, Fulwood, Ranmoor, Bents Green, Greystones & Bradway are lovely districts, Stannington, Firth Park, Darnall, Firshill, Chapeltown, Stocksbridge and Wicker are high crime areas and to be avoided.

That link is Manor Park in East London. London as in not Sheffield at all.

 

Setting that aside, are you saying Totley in Sheffield is a crime-ridden inner-city area with multiple deprivation? Or is that some other Totley somewhere else in the world?

 

The Totley I know is very dull indeed and hence not desirable at all for me personally, but only in the same way as, say Lodge Moor or Whirlow.

You are quite right Bilge my mistake, now rectified

 

i would not use those words you are using about Totley but it certainly is not as crime free as most people think.

 

take the first month for Dore And Totley, its by no means the worst one

Why mention Rotherham, the OP is asking about nice areas in Sheffield. But now you mention it, there are some lovely areas to live in Rotherham. Typical Sheffielder assumption, that everywhere surrounding Sheffield is a dump.

 

The problem with Sheffield, and many other areas alike, you are never too far away from problem locations.

If the defining aspect is where you would be *most comfortable in general* for a lone woman or child to walk alone at 9pm then that list is a good guide.

 

Most people are OK in most places in the above list but there are pockets of very good and very bad in all the AVOID areas. There are pockets of bad in Sharrowvale in the NICER PLACES but I'd say none of the others but be aware that Abbeydale isn't Abbeydale Rd.

 

If you are looking for lifestyle factors, the further to the edge of the city you go the quieter the pace of life and the higher the environmental quality of life and the more expensive the housing. The closer to the city centre the more things there are to spend your money on and the cheaper the housing.

 

The northern suburbs beyond the big council estates are generally nicer too, Grenoside, Chapeltown, Ecclesfield, Burncross, High Green, Stocksbridge, Deepcar, and they are substantially cheaper than the west and S West part of Sheffield.

 

The South West commuter townships that have grown up around Mosborough, Beighton, Swallownest are OK too.
