Welcome to Sheffield

Sheffield is a city of contradictions and surprises. It’s a well known fact and an open secret. It’s quirky, mysterious and green. It’s arty, down to earth, clever and funny. It’s poetic, romantic, northern and strong. It’s quiet and busy, the world’s biggest small town.

Located in the heart of the UK, Sheffield has excellent transport links whether you are travelling by road, rail or air.  Sheffield has extensive railway links to all major UK cities and London is just over two half hours away. Trains leave to London from Sheffield every hour. Manchester International Airport is an hour away and there are frequent direct trains to there from Sheffield city centre.

"Sheffield is one of the greenest cities in England with 150 woodlands and 50 public parks within the city. The greenery is throughout the city from the centre, where the Winter Gardens is Europe's largest city centre temperate glasshouse, to the countryside, where the Peak District national park is only ten minutes away from the University."

The Peak District

The Peak District, the first and largest of Britain's National Parks, is a place of outstanding natural beauty. Just five miles from Sheffield city centre it couldn't be easier to get to. Landscapes range from the gentle, limestone dales of the White Peak to the rugged rocky outcrops and open moorland of the dark Peak. Vast caves, natural springs and stone villages are easily accessible from Sheffield.

Peak District

See, for instance

Chatsworth is known as the 'Palace of the Peak' and is quite possibly the UK's most stunning country house and a 'must see' for any visitor. The magnificent grounds alone - with their fountains, formal gardens and maze - are worth the 25-minute scenic drive from Sheffield.
