Directions from Sheffield train station to GA HQ

Via the Supertram

The Supertram runs every ten minutes during office hours and picks up at the rear of the train station. The tram takes 10 – 15 minutes to the nearest stop to the GA (Netherthorpe Road) and from there it is a five minute walk to 160 Solly Street.


  1. Take the rear exit from the station to get to the tram stop.
  2. As you exit the station turn right, staying on the right hand side, to the tram stop – (signposted Sheffield station/ Sheffield Hallam University).
  3. Catch the ‘Blue route’ tram heading towards ‘Malin Bridge’. The stop you need is ‘Netherthorpe Road’ – the stop after ‘Sheffield University’.
  4. Once off the tram, turn right up the platform and down into the underpass. At the bottom of the underpass turn left, and go up the ramp/ steps in front of you.
  5. At the top of the ramp/ steps walk straight along between student flats on your left and Momentum Leisure club on your right to the end of the short road.
  6. Turn left, following the cycle route signpost for ‘Upperthorpe/ Hillsborough’. Do not walk down the road (Radford Street). Instead, take the path to the right of the road.
  7. Walk towards the basketball court (you will also see a Tesco Express in front and to the right of you), then turn right in front of it. With the basketball court now on your left, follow the path up and follow it left.
  8. Continue onto the road, walking past Tesco Express, then take the first right after the store into Kenyon Street.
  9. Go straight up the hill. At the end of the road turn left onto Solly Street (you will see a sign for Solly Street opposite you on the other side of the road).
  10. The GA’s offices are approximately 20 metres down the road.

It's great to hear from Mr Isaac Fred Afful, President of the Mfantsipim Geographical Society in Ghana. The GA is keen to develop its links with individual geographers and organisations in all parts of the world and we have a very active International Special Interest Group made up of GA members. The best way for Mr Allul to get involved with the GA is first of all to become a member. As an individual, and a member of his local geographical society, he is eligible for the GA's special International Associate Membership. Or he may wish to apply for Group Membership in the name of the Mfantsipim school or the Mfantsipim geographical society. Details of GA membership choices are on this website, or contact me for more information. All good wishes, Frances Soar, GA Membership Services Manager. e-mail: [email protected]
