Title: Sheffield pub crawl by bus (not the usual suspects)
Creator: Will Larter

An extended circuit of up to eleven pubs away from the centre of Sheffield and the “Valley of Beer” regulars, reached by bus and a small amount of walking. All pubs are free houses with a good variety of real ales and (in most cases) real ciders always available. All buses (except the 31 – see Blake & Shakespeare below) are frequent, though less so after 6pm.

You will need to purchase a Sheffield CityWide all day bus and tram ticket for £4.90 (available from bus drivers on First, Stagecoach or TM Travel, or on the tram). Maps and timetables can be accessed at and
