Nicknamed the Steel City thanks to its production of the material during the Industrial Revolution, Sheffield is a dynamic university city with a vibrant cultural scene. Full of northern charm, this is a destination where sport, nature, music and the arts are all thriving, and where modern architecture stands alongside historic buildings. So whether you’re visiting to get a taste of Sheffield’s impressive food and drink scene or for work, you won’t be short of things to do. There are a number of hotels in Sheffield city centre, but if you’re looking for a friendly home-from-home, head to Jurys Inn Sheffield for a warm welcome.
Get your bearings
Located on the eastern side of the Peak District National Park, Sheffield is one of the UK’s greenest cities, with around 60 percent of its entire area comprised of green space. In fact, as well as having more than 250 gardens, parks and woodlands within its boundaries, a third of the city actually sits within the Peak District, meaning Sheffield is uniquely placed to offer a cutting-edge city break and a countryside escape in one trip.
When it comes to green spaces within the city centre, you’ll find both old and new. The Winter Garden is a modern, airy glasshouse that opened in 2003 and houses more than 2,500 plants, while Sheffield’s Botanical Gardens opened in 1836 and cover no fewer than 19 acres. If you want to get a better idea of how the city’s industrial history plays into its modern character, pay a visit to Kelham Island Museum, situated on a man-made island that was once home to numerous steel works and factories. Today, alongside the museum, you’ll also find microbreweries and independent boutiques.
While you’re there
Both theatre and music are key to this city. Birthplace of musical icons including Pulp, Def Leppard and Arctic Monkeys, Sheffield’s gig scene is huge, and venues like The Leadmill, Plug and Sheffield City Hall have a consistent line-up of bands each week. If you prefer theatre, the city has several spaces including Crucible Theatre and Lyceum Theatre, offering a mix of original productions and touring shows.
