Abbeydale Road and Abbeydale Road South is a road in Sheffield. It leads south-west from the suburb of Highfield to the railway bridge over the Dore and Chinley railway, before becoming Baslow Road. The road begins at a junction with London Road near the former Royal Hotel public house.

The road forms part of the A621. The road passes Abbeydale, Millhouses, Beauchief and Abbeydale Park.

Unlike other trunk roads of Sheffield, Abbeydale Road is not home to many public houses. In Nether Edge, Abbeydale Road is home to the Abbeydale Picture House. Until 8 October 1960, trams of the Sheffield Tramway ran from Sheffield City Centre along Abbeydale Road to Millhouses terminus. The road has been converted to a dual-carriageway from Millhouses to the Baslow Road railway bridge.
