Welcome to Sheffield – a city recognized as the greenest city in Europe with more trees per person than any other city in Europe (4.5 million trees) and a third of the city lying within the serene Peak District National Park.

The largest settlement in South Yorkshire and the third most populous district in the UK (as of 2019) and a member of the Core Cities Group, Sheffield has long been considered the backbone of the UK, being responsible for much of the steel production during significant periods of the nation’s history, most notably during World War II.

More than just a farming and manufacturing city, Sheffield also has a thriving folk music and poetry scene with the city being responsible for some of the biggest acts that have come out of the UK in the last 50 years including Joe Cocker, Def Leppard, The Arctic Monkeys, Pulp, and The Long Blondes amongst others.

A city of history-makers, Sheffield is home to the world’s oldest football club (Sheffield FC), the world’s oldest football ground (Sandygate), and the UK’s first-ever professional Ice Hockey team (Sheffield Steelers).

Things to do

In a city as large and dynamic as Sheffield, it is difficult to run out of things to do.

With 6 cinema complexes (including a throwback drive-in cinema at the Don Valley Bowl) and the largest theatre complex outside of London, with 3 notable theatres (the Lyceum, Crucible, and Studio theatres), there’s no lack of entertainment.

If you prefer to be in on the action yourself, Sheffield also plays host to several notable festivals including the Grin Up North Sheffield Comedy Festival and the Sensoria Music and Film Festival, both taking place in October.

If you are a budding musician, you can also join one of Sheffield’s many orchestras and choirs. Choose from the Sheffield Symphony Orchestra, the Sheffield Philharmonic Orchestra, the Sheffield Chamber Orchestra, the City of Sheffield Youth Orchestra, or one of the city’s two community choirs: the Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus community choir or the Chorus UK community choir. Alternatively, you could join the Sheffield Carols, a community music group that go around the local pubs spreading joy at Christmas with their recitals of beloved Christmas carols.

The city is also home to 13 different Morris Dancing teams!

For art enthusiasts, get inspired by visiting Graves Art Gallery, Millenium Galleries, or Weston Park Museum.

In the city centre, on West Street (that runs through the West End district of the city centre), there are a multitude of pubs with some, due to the long history of Sheffield, going back decades and decades.

Indian restaurant, Aagrah, known for their Kashmiri cuisine and located at the city’s square, were also the proud owners of the “Best Restaurant Group in the UK” title, awarded to them by the British Curry Awards in 2013 – so that might be one for the bucket list if you like your Indian food.
