Meadowhall Park and Ride  (8 Answers)

I am hoping to use the park & ride and catch the tram to the Don Valley stadium - but it is not clear what the cost will be. I would really appreciate if someone can clarify this. The tram site says it is £3 return or I could get a day travel ticket for £4.00. Another site says the fare is £4.50 and I have to purchase the ticket from a machine in the car park? There was also something about a family travelcard for £6.50 - can 2 adults travel on this without children in the family?
Also one person travelling with us has a UK concessionary travel pass - is this valid from the park and ride for free travel?
Thanks in advance for any information.

Widnes to Sheffield  (5 Answers)

My husband has an appointment at The Royal Hallamshire Hospspital for tests. He will only be there for the day on February 7th. He will be going by ambulance so therefore I can not go with him. I would like to be there for him and I am looking into the probability of getting there on my own. I don't drive, I am 76 years of age but in good health. Does anyone know of any transport from Widnes, Cheshire. It is near to Warrington and Liverpool.
Thank you Joan Stanley

One Day in Sheffield  (3 Answers)

We find ourselves with 1 extra day of travel during our trip to Yorkshire. Leaving Whitby toward London for return flight to USA gives us an opportunity to spend a brief time along a direct train route South. Our thinking was check out Whitby hotel early, short train somewhere in order to experience a different destination and next day long travel back to London ( we have already spent some tome there in the beginning of our trip ) Hotel in London will be close to Heathrow. We are interested in Sheffield because of its botanical gardens, the Wintergarden and Magna. Any comments from the VT gang would be appreciated in support of this plan as well as recommendations for hotel choices and things to do for an afternoon in Sheffield.

Getting from National Express arrival bus station to Moncrieffe Road, Netheredge  (2 Answers)

Can I ask for local advice please, on several related questions. We (2) are arriving in Sheffield on a National Express coach from Leeds on Saturday 18 July. We then need to get to Moncrieffe Road. I gather the bus is the 22. Where exactly does the coach arrive, and where should I catch the 22? Or, as we are two, should we take a taxi?

Further question. Do I need to book the National Express coach in advance from Leeds to Sheffield, or can we book when we get to the bus station? We are flying in to Leeds Bradford airport, so we cannot be sure of when we will get to Leeds bus station.

Thanks for your help and advice.

Hillsborough  (3 Answers)

Hiya Folks,

I am organising a training event in Hillsborough Barracks and I’m looking for accommodation for several people.

It needs to be a reasonable standard, safe etc and handy for the barracks (easy walking distance if possible).

I know the Garrison and that’s ideal but I also need somewhere else.

Nice Cafés in Sheffield and best area to live  (3 Answers)

Hey everyone,
I moved to Sheffield last summer and I'm still desperately looking for nice Cafés preferably some with sofas and alike.

I'm currently living in Crookesmoor but thinking of moving to another area, but I'm not sure where (but one or two nice cafès around is very important ;-). I have to admit that I haven't seen very much of sheffield up to now but would like to change that. Any suggestions where to live are very welcome.

Hope to hear from you :)
