Known the world over as “The Steel City”, Sheffield was famed for its industry in the heyday of the 1900’s and remains a city of innovation to this day. However the smoking chimney stacks are no more and instead you’ll find a green, modern cityscape set against the stunning backdrop of the Peak District National Park.
We have a friendly, independent and alternative spirit that you won’t find in other cities, alongside a thriving cultural scene boasting award-winning theatre, beer, music, festivals, street art and so much more. It’s all here waiting for you: Welcome to Sheffield.
Being the compact city that it is, Sheffield is pretty easy to get around, so whether you fancy clocking up some steps or jumping on a bus/tram, there are some really interesting districts close to the city centre just waiting to be discovered.
From the quirky Antiques Quarter to impossibly cool Kelham Island, the bright lights of the City Centre right out to the rolling hills of quaint Bradfield, there’s a whole lot more to Sheffield than meets the eye.
