Explore the Steel City like never before

Discover how engineering has shaped the city of Sheffield on a special walking tour this June.

As part of the Institution of Civil Engineers’ Explore Engineering Weekend from June 21-23, Chartered Civil Engineer David Tattersall will lead a sightseeing journey around some of the city’s most famous landmarks.

Points of interest on the route include the cathedral, Sheffield Station and Passenger Transport Interchange, Lady’s Bridge, the Parkway Viaduct and Victoria Quays.

Former Regional Director of ICE Yorkshire and Humber, David Tattersall, said: “So often, we wander around our cities without thinking about what’s beneath our feet, or the feats of civil engineering which have enabled them to blossom.

“This event will provide an engineering insight into the history and growth of the city of Sheffield.”

Explore Engineering: A Civilised Place walk, Sheffield, will take place on Friday, June 21, and Sunday, June 23, at 10.30am, starting at Sheffield Cathedral.
