Visiting Us

We are at:

Sheffield Hackspace

Portland Works

Randall Street

Sheffield

S2 4SJ

We are based at Portland Works on Randall Street near Bramall Lane. In fact the stadium is located just at the end of the street as you can see in the image above. Entrance is via the big green door on the left. Hit the button on the intercom and we’ll let you in.

If it’s your first time coming to the hackspace, we suggest coming along on a Saturday afternoon (2pm-6pm) as this will gives us an opportunity to give you a proper tour and answer all your questions.

Public Transport

The hackspace is very well served by public transport.

Train

Our nearest train station is Sheffield and is within a 20 minute walking distance.

Tram

The nearest tram stops are Granville Road and University of Sheffield, but neither are particularly close.

Bus

There are a number of routes that run down Bramall Lane (18, 19 & 252), however the bulk of local buses run down London Road (20, 43, 44, 51a, 75, 76, 86, 97, 98 & 798).

Additionally, if you are coming in from Rotherham (a number of members do), you will want to consider the X1 which comes from Maltby (through Rotherham, Meadowhall, Attercliffe & etc) and terminates at Moor Market (about 700m away).

Cycling

The hackpace is located on a yard where you can secure your bicycle.

Parking

There is a limited amount of local street parking available on Randall Street, Hill Street (one side is permit only) and Harwood Street. We also suggest that if you are coming in on a Sheffield United home game day, that you consider taking public transport as Randall Street will normally be closed by the police (for away team coaches). And, other local parking will likely be filled to capacity.
