Weekend in Rotherham?
Roche Abbey is nice, ruins of an abbey – cross the M18 and head for Maltby, it should be signposted.Posted 4 years ago
Rotherham Museum is ok, it’s in Clifton Park closer to town but only 10 mins drive away.
At a push Rother Valley Country Park is ok for a walk round the lake, a bit further South from Bramley.
If you are looking for a survivable pub experience, the Hind is ok – head away from the M18 towards the M1 and it’s on the LHS of a dual carriageway.
As Pook says Whiston is ok and the Golden Ball is ok.MoseyMTBMember
I’ll echo Pook being from the same neck of the woods, wentworth is lovely, walk round the house grounds or sample the garden centre cafe.
The town centre is awful. Shopping wise parkgate is ok or Meadowhall is 5 minutes up the road.
Pop to Sheffield and do a tour of the million bike shops.
And wickersley is lovely, the masons however is not!Posted 4 years agojackthedogMember
If you have a car, nip up to Wentworth on Sunday, it’s nearby and it’s lovely. On Saturday evening, if you like good pubs, I’d recommend doing a few of the good ale pubs in sheffield. It’s a ten minute train ride away, and you can start (and/or finish or even just stay all evening) at the Sheffield Tap right in the station.Posted 4 years agoscuttlerMember
Magna’s OK if there’s kids involved or you are interested in industry. If you’re unsure watch this week’s Storyville on the iplayer and then decide.Posted 4 years ago
Rother Valley Country Park is nice if you like dangerous dogs
Greno Woods is close if you bring the bike
Wentworth Castle and Deer Park (not a real castle – a folly) is nice for a wander and a cake stop
Not sure what the attraction is with Parkgate Retail Centre unless you’re from Mars and want to see what morons do in their leisure time. I’d hazard a guess it’s vaguely similar to the identikit retail park hellhole you have in your town
Not far into Sheffield which has the theatres, the winter gardens, a John Lewis (did I say that), various parks and bike shops and restaurants. Eccleshall Road towards Hunter’s bar is a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours.
