Known the world over as a Steel City, Sheffield was famed for its industry in the heyday of the 1900s 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.
