Have your say

Fitzalan Square is a municipal square situated in the centre of Sheffield.

It is one of the busiest areas of the city centre, with traffic and pedestrians continually moving through the area.

It has a Supertram stop and a taxi rank.

This area of Sheffield city had been the market quarter and the square takes its name from the Fitzalan Market Hall, which stood near the site from 1786 to 1930.

The Fitzalans were a lesser branch of the Howard family, Dukes of Norfolk and the major local landowners at that time.
