Having undergone something of a cultural revolution in recent years with its flourishing arts, film and music scene, Sheffield is something of an unsung treasure on the entertainment map.
The city is armed with a lively nightlife thanks to its flourishing student population. Gig-goers will find much to enjoy at The Leadmill, voted the Best Live Music Venue in the country by NME, while those in search of a great evening out can take a stroll down Ecclesall Road – home to terrific pubs, bars and restaurants.
Culture vultures will find plenty to entertain. The Crucible theatre is home to some of the UK’s most acclaimed and cutting-edge stage drama, while you can catch award-winning musicals, contemporary ballet and film festivals at the Lyceum.
The city enjoys a rich sporting tradition, which is reflected in its array of action-packed activities – Sheffield’s position on the edge of the beautiful Peak District means that outdoor enthusiasts have much to savour.
From an enjoyable bike ride over rolling hills, to guided rock climbing on some of the most challenging and popular routes in Europe – there’s something for everyone.
