Aston Hall Hotel, Worksop Road, Aston, South Yorkshire, S26 2EE - Visit now
Another historic hotel, here – Aston Hall Hotel was built in 1772 and has been carefully restored to maintain many of the original features.

About 10 minutes from the city centre, and close to Ecclesall Road (good for pubs, indie shops and cafés), the Halifax Hall Hotel is boutique hotel in a converted period mansion. Sheffield’s beautiful Botanical Gardens are also close by.
Despite the traditional summer break, there’s still plenty of poetry and prose to catch, book and magazine launches, birthday parties, and even an exhibition dedicated to libraries. And if you don’t like sitting still for too long, there’s even a literature trail or two to check out…
