Known the world over as the 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.

With an amazing array of independent eateries and microbreweries, renowned live music, great outdoors, award-winning theatre, colourful street art, fascinating exhibitions and vibrant festivals year-round, there’s a lot to keep you entertained.

With ongoing current events, things remain a little different here, as it is for cities across the world at the moment. But rest assured- our hotels, restaurants, cultural venues, attractions, pubs, cafes, bars and experience providers across our city, have worked hard to provide a safe and secure stay for our visitors. 

PLEASE NOTE: We’re currently working hard on a brand-new Welcome to Sheffield website. You’ll still find some great suggestions on these pages, but some of the information may not be up to date. For the most up to date news and ideas for exploring the city, as Sheffield eases out of lockdown restrictions, please see the Make Yourself at Home webpage here

We'd also recommend you visit the dedicated websites/social media for any Sheffield attractions, accommodation, shops, restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs, to see their latest information before visiting. Booking is essential for lots of the city's attractions and hospitality businesses.
