Newest Review: ... experience is Primark (which actually is suprisingly big for a town of this size). There are few chain clothes stores and the independent stores are not the unique little boutiques you find in some towns. Instead they are bargain basement stores filled with much of the same junk and do not make for an enjoyable shopping experience. I have begun to look back over my nights out in Rotherham ... more

I will not write a review based on the history of the town; I base my review purely on my experience of having lived here for 18 years of my life and trust me this is an experience I don't wish to repeat in a hurry.

I've visited Rotherham many times over the years as I lived in a village on the outskirts, between Rotherham and Doncaster. It is only a small market town which has changed over the years. It is a metropolitan borough council in South Yorkshire, and is in the heart of an industrialized area based mainly on coal, iron and steel works. But the town centre itself is away from all that, has been recently pedestrianised and rejuvinated to make it quite appealing. The church in the town centre is a focal point of the town, as is Clifton Park, again set in the centre and including tennis courts and Clifton Park Museum. There is a shopping arcade adn ...
