Walking Tours of Sheffield with CityDays


Your urban odyssey starts here!

Welcome to Sheffield, South Yorkshire’s industrious city gem with a riveting and unexpectedly tumultuous history.

Home to over 746,000 people, Sheffield has procured its place as a go-to destination for everyone from sports fans to students. 

But beyond its reputation as a pioneering powerhouse, Sheffield is home to a lot of fascinating and overlooked historic gems that unite local feats and figures with global history. 

Our gamified Sheffield walking tours show you everything you need to see and do in Sheffield while also uncovering some lesser-known facts, places and secrets that even many locals don’t know about – all while having fun with the people you like most!

Get The Most Out of Your Walking Tours in Sheffield


Our Sheffield walking tours transform you and your friends, family, colleagues or whoever into detectives, explorers and tour guides all at the same time. 

You’ll be tasked with solving a murder mystery in Sheffield that has dumbfounded even the likes of Sherlock Holmes. Luckily, he’ll be playing along beside you as you scavenge the city for clues, hunting down historic sights and collecting pieces of trivia along the way. 

You answer the clues, you discover the secret sights and hidden gems, and it’s your team that competes for top spot on our leaderboard.

We’ve worked hard to make sure there’s something for everyone who plays our Sheffield walking tours. So if it’s history, pubs, cosy cafes, weird geographical quirks or the satisfaction of solving a murder mystery you’re after - know that you’ll find it with CityDays!

See The City Your Way: Sheffield City Walking Tours


No queues, no hassle, no guide, no strangers. 

Your enjoyment is at the heart of what we do. That’s why we create trails that help you explore a city without any of the downsides of doing so on a typical sightseeing tour.

You decide who you do your tour with: whether it’s just you or you invite your friends, family, other half or colleagues along for the journey, rest assured that no strangers will be crashing your adventure.

Take your time or race ahead: We have an opt-in competitive element to our games. That means that if you answer the clues in record time, submit the best photo or take part in any of our other challenges, your team will be in with the chance to win fun prizes.

However, these are totally optional and if you want to take your time exploring the sights or nipping into cosy shops, rest stops or attractions along the way, by all means do!

In fact, we encourage rest stops: We want you to experience the best of Sheffield. That’s why we recommend pubs, cafes and bars that you can use as rest stops along the way if you want to. If you’re raring to go or have other commitments in mind, that’s fine too. You’re welcome to pause the game at any point and resume it when you’re ready.

Stop or start whenever it’s convenient for you: Babysitter or train cancelled? No problem! Our games can be played at any time, although we do recommend playing during daylight hours (it’s hard to spot clues in the dark and your safety is a priority for us). 

All you need is a phone, comfy shoes and a sense of adventure: really, that’s it. If you have a good bunch of people around you, all the better. 

The Best Sheffield Walking Tours


Our walking tours of Sheffield are self-guided and designed to show you the good stuff, cut out the boring stuff, and get you interacting with your surroundings. 

How do we do that? 

Well, we put the activity back in your hands. We curate our trails so they take you around a city’s most interesting streets, landmarks, history, and introduce you to its famous figures. The only catch is - it’s up to you to solve our puzzles, riddles and clues to take you from each one to the next! 

Instead of a traditional guide leading you from pillar to post, we send puzzles, riddles and clues to your phone that contain the answers and directions for your next stop. Don’t worry - you don’t need to be tech-savvy to play. If you can send text messages, you’re more than qualified!

Still a bit confused? Here’s how it works
