Sheffield

Sheffield

Sheffield has a proud heritage as a highly successful industrial centre in the heart of England, but today it’s much more than steel and coal. The city has undergone a transformation over the last decade, bringing attractive architecture and regenerated green spaces to its vibrant population.

A compact city with eleven distinct ‘quarters’, it’s easy to explore Sheffield on foot or by public transport. Discover the Antiquities Quarter, with its wealth of quirky shopping finds and boho coffee spots, or head out to charming Bradfield, a village nestled amongst the rolling hills of the Peak District.

Sheffield is a cultural hotspot, with a variety of music venues big and small playing host to home-grown talent and international acts. There are also numerous art galleries and two theatres, including the Crucible Theatre. Alongside the drama of its own productions, the Crucible Theatre houses the World Snooker Championship each spring.

But Sheffield is also more than an urban experience. Although it’s one of the largest cities in England, two-thirds of its total area is green space. 250 parks, woodlands and gardens offer diverse greenery and ensure there are more trees per person than any other European city. And yet that’s only the beginning: with the Peak District and Pennine hills directly west, there’s some amazing scenery for hiking and cycling on your doorstep, too.

We love Sheffield because...

  • Vibrant city centre
  • Historic attractions
  • Diverse green spaces

In and around Sheffield

Kelham Island

A short walk from the city centre, a trip to Kelham Island provides a number of points of interest and insight into Sheffield’s industrial past. The island was manmade during the 12th century to bring water from the River Don to a corn mill. Much later, in the early 19th century, an iron foundry was built, which today is home to the fascinating Kelham Island Museum. Visit the museum to learn more of Sheffield’s key role in the history of steel manufacturing before exploring a variety of local real ale pubs – another gem from the past – down the ‘valley of beer.’ Set aside time to wander amongst the former cutlery factories which helped make Sheffield an economic powerhouse, too – they’re now occupied by microbreweries, local artists and independent shops.

The Botanical Gardens

A city centre oasis, Sheffield’s Botanical Gardens span 19 acres and encompass 8 garden areas, themed by the plants’ geographical origins and other botanical similarities. Opened in 1836, the Gardens are a Grade II site of historic and architectural interest and include magnificent glass pavilions, expansive lawns perfect for picnicking, a well preserved tree fossil approximately 300 million years old and a bear pit, which once housed two bears for the amusement of Victorian families. Entry is free and the Gardens are open 7 days a week.

The Peak District

For those looking for greenery and fresh air beyond city limits, the moors and dales of the Peak District make the perfect escape. A renowned national park, the Peak District is 1440 square kilometres of natural beauty, with an extensive network of footpaths and cycle trails available throughout. There are also an abundance of activities such as rock climbing and caving to turn your hand to, as well as many pretty villages in which to stop for cream tea. Near Sheffield you can explore the Longshaw Estate on a walk down to Padley Gorge, or try the 9 mile walking route along the majestic cliffs of Stanage Edge to Hathersage.
