Barbour International has always held a strong connection with motorcycle enthusiasts and those dreaming of the open road. In our latest blog series, celebrating our new store opening in Sheffield, we’re sharing some of the best pit stops in the surrounding area of Sheffield for you to explore after visiting…
The Peak District is without a doubt, one of the UK’s best motorcycling spots with its scenic routes and fantastic roads.
Matlock to Graton via Winster and Snitterton is a great place to start off on the Peak District ride. Starting in the popular biker town of Matlock. From there, head over the River Derwent and towards the small traditional town of Winster.
Steam Yard, Sheffield
Steam Yard is an independent coffee shop which first opened its doors in January 2014, owned by Matt, a designer who works in the music industry, and Nick, the barista and coffee expert. The interior of Steam Yard uses inspiration from across the world, inspired by both music and culture.
Find white walls with simple concrete floors, reclaimed oak and steel framed booths which give the coffee shop an industrial yet cosy feel. Splashes of orange contrast this to create a warm atmosphere to sit back and enjoy your favourite cup of coffee before hitting the road again.
Yellow Arch Studios, Sheffield
Yellow Arch Studios, situated in the heart of Kelham Island, first started life as an Edwardian nuts & bolts factory at the turn of the 20th century. In 1997, the building was taken on by a group of Sheffield musicians & artists who refurbished the building and developed what would become a nationally-renowned recording studio and rehearsal facilities. Since then, it has continued to expand and evolve, building an official venue in 2015. Most notable artists to have rehearsed, recorded or played at Yellow Arch Studios are Arctic Monkeys, Richard Hawley, Jarvis Cocker, Macka B, James, David Rodigan plus many, many more.
