Mini guide to Rotherham

     

Located in south Yorkshire, Rotherham boasts a beautiful rolling countryside and picturesque villages, with over 70 percent of the area being rural. Enjoy the glorious views and wonderful country air! Although small in size, Rotherham has its claim to fame in the form of Britain's greatest inventions: the screw-down water tap and the Bailey Bridge.

Rotherham offers a mix of history and heritage, both in and around the town. Visit the Boston Castle, which stands on the highest point in Rotherham. Built as a shooting lodge, the castle is named after the Boston Tea Party and legend says it was forbidden to drink tea inside the castle. The nearby Roche Abbey was founded in 1147 and named after the limestone outcrops which occur there. The Abbey has a turbulent history, having been surrendered to the Crown in 1554. The grounds of the Abbey, which are beautifully landscaped, are also worth a visit. For a break from historic sites, do some great shopping at the Centenary market.

There are several wonderful walking options for those who love the outdoors. Stroll along the Chesterfield Canal, which was built in 1777, and enjoy the wildlife and nature. The towpath, known as the Cuckoo Way, is 46 miles long and is said to be the prettiest in England. Clifton Park is a beautiful Victorian Park that offers tranquillity and relaxation, away from the daily hustle and bustle. The five churches walk is a popular 10 mile circular route that links five churches and unspoilt villages - Wales, Harthill, Thorpe Salvin, South Anston and Todwick churches.

Located in the heart of England, Rotherham enjoys excellent road and rail links. Direct train services are available from Rotherham to Doncaster, Sheffield, Leeds, Hull, Scunthorpe, Grimsby and Cleethorpes with limited services to Manchester. The closest airport is Leeds-Bradford. Motorists can reach Rotherham off Junction 1 of the M18, at the end of the M1.
