Sheffield, once famed for its steel industry is now modern set against the stunning backdrop of the Peak District National Park.

The Steel City

Being the greenest city in the UK, you’re never too far away from moorland and rocky ridges when you want to escape the city.

But why escape at all? With independent microbreweries scattered across the city, famed live music events taking place across the year and a whole host of exhibitions, street art and festivals to explore, Sheffield has it all.

And if you still want to learn about the city’s industrial heritage, there’s plenty opportunities, take a trip to Kelham Island Museum or the Magna Science Adventure Centre in nearby Rotherham.
