    After 2 failed attempts to find an entry point to this place it was third time lucky! The entrance was a tricky one though. Even though we've failed twice on this one, we heard that the place was in line to be demolished so we just had to get in there before the wipe it out.

    After all that as well, it wasn't as good as we thought. It was still an amazing view and we were expecting the place to be gutted, just perhaps not as gutted as it is. You might as well climb to the top of a multi story car park, its the same thing really.

    Still, glad we did it but wish we could have done it a few years ago.

    Some wiki history for those who don't know the place:

    Designed by Nelson Foley of the Trust House Architectural Department, construction started in 1963 at a cost of £1 million. The Hallam Tower Hotel, owned by Trust Houses Group Ltd, opened on 24 March 1965 and at opening boasted 136 bedrooms over its eleven stories, employed nearly 150 staff members and covered a three and a half acre site. The hotel included facilities such as the Vulcan Room restaurant which featured a colour scheme of "orange, yellow, pale wrapping paper brown and sour green", the Sheffield Plate Grill (a quick service buttery), decorated with "a series of Sheffield trade signs, none of them later than 1910 and most of them mid-19th century" and a colour scheme of pink, red, black and white, and the Downstairs Bar, described in the original press release for the hotel thus; "A dark intimate room with a club-like atmosphere enlivened by turquoise blue upholstery. Dark lincrusta walls. 18th century Hogarth engravings. Silver Trimmings."
