Whether you’re here for the city life, a shopaholic on the hunt for a great deal or looking to escape into the countryside, there will always be plenty to keep you busy when you visit Sheffield. 

Take in a bit of Sheffield’s culture and head to the city centre to check out the Millennium Galleries, full of art exhibits and displays of Sheffield’s heritage. Right next door is the Winter Garden, an award winning glasshouse with over 2500 plants from around the world. Whilst you’re in the centre, why not indulge in a bit of high street shopping on Fargate or The Moor? Or if you want something vintage or a bit more ‘Sheffield-made’ take a trip to the Antiques Quarter, Ecclesall Road or Sharrowvale.

Visit Sheffield Theatres; the world famous Crucible, the beautiful Lyceum and the Studio, to watch big names and local heros of theatre, musicals and drama.

If you want a break from the city, the Peak District is right on Sheffield’s doorstep. You can walk out for miles of uninterrupted countryside, or cycle the country roads if you are up the hill climbs! There’s plenty of activities out in the peaks too, such as bouldering, climbing and mountain biking.

After a busy day you’re going to want to sample the Sheffield nightlife. For a bit of entertainment, head to one of the many famous theatres such as The Crucible or Lyceum. For food and drink, look no further than Kelham Island, home to many great bars and restaurants along the River Don.
