The Industrial Revolution saw Sheffield at the forefront of metal works and steel making, not just in the UK, but in the world. With the decline of this industry in the mid-20th century, Sheffield faced economic ruin, and by the 1980's, much of the city's industry had closed down. The turn of the millennium saw a change in the direction of the city, with investments returning to help regenerate and transform the public spaces and buildings into a thriving city centre. New works, such as The Peace Gardens and the Millennium Galleries, were completed alongside the huge shopping area of the Meadowhall that have kick-started the city's revival. Sheffield today is a vibrant city with art galleries, museums, and theatres that rival even those of London, and it has a reputation as one of the leading business venues in the north of England.

Location: England's greenest city

Nestled within a natural amphitheatre of hills upon which it is built, Sheffield has more woodland, parks, and public gardens than any other city in England. Bordering the eastern edge of the Peak District National Park and the Pennine Hills means outward development was limited, and it has six areas of green-space within the city that are designated as sites of special scientific interest. It is less than 60 kilometres to both Manchester to the west and Leeds to the north, and sits in an area that was once famous for heavy industry but now is known for its outstanding natural beauty.

Business: A world-class business sector

With the regeneration of the old steel works into new developments of professional office space and small industries, Sheffield offers incentives and support to many businesses that have established themselves within the city. St Paul’s Place and The Square in the heart of the city are two areas of high quality office space that have been designed for the modern business. On the outskirts of the city, the Sheffield Digital Campus is a site specifically for the digital and creative industries, with an infrastructure that is second to none in the UK.

Culture: A theatre complex of outstanding quality

The Sheffield theatre scene is based mainly around the three theatres of the Lyceum, the Crucible, and the Crucible Studio. The Crucible is famous for hosting the annual World Snooker Championships as well as some of the most famous plays on a stage that extends out into the auditorium and can be seen from three sides. It places the audience in the thick of the action, with no seat further than 22 metres away from the stage.

Activities: Explore the rugged beauty of the Peak District

The Peak District National Park is 1,438 square kilometres of outstanding beauty, and a third of this lies within Sheffield district boundaries. It was the first national park to be created, and it has been free for public use for over 60 years. With hundreds of kilometres of cycling, walking, and climbing routes, there is plenty of opportunity to see this wonderful landscape at your own pace.
