The independent alternative

A wealth of shopping opportunities, particularly for those looking for something different.

At the heart of the borough

Rotherham Town Centre is at the heart of the borough, providing an attractive, compact location.

It has pedestrianised shopping areas radiating from the magnificent Rotherham Minster.

There is a wealth of shopping opportunities, particularly for those looking for something different.

The town centre is a mixture of High Street favourites, small independent shops, cafes and restaurants.

There is a bustling indoor and outdoor market and award-winning street market.

"Some of the retailers I thought, honestly, were better than some in the heart of London." — Mary Portas
