Welcome to Sheffield

Sheffield has grown from its industrial roots into a thriving modern metropolis. Sitting astride the River Sheaf, the city has undergone extensive redevelopment in recent years, giving it an attractive, contemporary edge. With a third of the city located within the Peak District National Park, Sheffield is packed with green spaces, woodlands and gardens. It also provides all of the shops, restaurants and other amenities that modern life demands.

With over 250 parks, Sheffield is bursting with outdoor space for its citizens to enjoy. In fact, with 250 million trees, Sheffield has the highest ratio of trees to people of any city in Europe.

Sheffield is also full of modern conveniences, with shops, cafés, restaurants and sports/leisure facilities aplenty. A host of music venues, theatres and museums add to the experience on offer to those living and studying in this exciting city.

Sports enthusiasts have plenty to keep them entertained in Sheffield. Sheffield FC is the world’s oldest official football club and football still has a strong presence in the city today. Rugby league, hockey, ice hockey and snooker also have strong ties with the city, making Sheffield an ideal home for those who love sport, either as participants or as fans. 

Sheffield is a welcoming city for students. Packed with cultural attractions and a city centre compact enough to explore on foot, it offers the perfect combination of big city convenience and small town warmth. Students can benefit particularly from Sheffield’s thriving social and music scene.


Sheffield is home to both the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University. Sheffield Hallam is the third largest university in the UK, with a big international student base.

Getting around

Many students opt to explore Sheffield by bike, as an inexpensive and environmentally aware mode of transportation. There are some challenging hills to really get those legs muscles working, as well as some lovely cycle paths in the woods surrounding the city. The city centre is also a good size for exploring on foot.

Sheffield is extremely well connected by train, with routes running to London in the south and eastern Scotland in the north. The East and West Midlands are also easily reachable, as are Manchester, Hull and East Anglia. Thanks to its route into London St Pancras, it is even possible to travel easily into mainland Europe by train from Sheffield.

Within the city itself, there are regular bus services to all popular locations, with coaches also travelling to a wide choice of other destinations. The Sheffield Supertram offers another convenient way to travel into the city centre and to numerous outlying regions. Passengers can travel on the Supertram and the buses without needing separate tickets, as both are operated by Stagecoach.

Air travel is easy from Sheffield, with Doncaster Sheffield Airport around 29km outside of the city centre, Leeds Bradford International Airport and East Midlands Airport just an hour away and direct trains to Manchester Airport.


Sheffield has three distinct shopping districts within the centre: Fargate, Orchard Square and The Moor. The pedestrianized Fargate precinct has everything you could wish for from a modern high street, while the open air Orchard Square shopping centre contains both mainstream brands and funky independent labels. For huge department stores as well as a bustling market, The Moor is the place to be and the Meadowhall shopping centre is well worth a visit. All three areas are conveniently located within a few minutes’ walk of each other.


Whether you’re into live music, clubbing or bingo, Sheffield has the perfect nightspot. The city is full of quirky bars, unique clubs and cool hangouts that make for a fantastic social life. If you fancy a dressy bar for cocktails, check out SOYO. For local bands and DJs, head to The Great Gatsby on Division Street. Or to really set yourself apart from the crowd hire out the private balcony in Menzels, which overlooks the main bar and comes with its own waiting staff to cater to your every need.

Restaurants and eating out

Sheffield offers a diverse range of cuisines and venues, from tiny cafés to upscale restaurants. Head to Urban 1/4 for some of the best burgers in the city or check out The Doctor’s Orders for hearty comfort food. The bistro night at Ella’s Café is not to be missed and a pie from Cossack Cuisine is an absolute essential.


Sheffield offers everything one could wish for when it comes to keeping fit. Whether you prefer the pool, the gym or lovely woodland running paths, Sheffield has what you need. The city also boasts some excellent golfing, climbing, bowling and ice-skating facilities. At a professional level, it is home to the Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United football clubs.
