Sheffield – The Outdoor City

 

Treat yourself to a getaway. Treat yourself to Sheffield.

Sheffield is the ideal city break destination – full of open spaces and exciting places. Just the kind of city to plan to escape to for a few days, with a few friends.

Wander through the open-air galleries created by street art trails, or follow a fascinating tour exploring the city’s home of football heritage. Take time out with friends to fill your lungs with fresh air or get into the spirit of the city with a new experience – from chocolate making and food tours to distilling your own gin.

Make yourself at home around one of the coolest neighbourhoods in the country at Kelham Island. Bearing witness to one of Sheffield’s oldest manufacturing sites with Europe’s largest working steam engine shaking the floor in Kelham Island Museum. Afterwards explore the

neighbouring cutlery and steel works buildings, now re-purposed and filled with indie shopping arcades, restaurants and micro-breweries.

From Kelham, swap the cool and urban scene for a wide-open view of The Outdoor City, where the natural beauty begins to raise its pretty head in Sheffield’s Botanical Gardens. From there you can continue to breathe in some fresh air as you step out along the pretty wooded riverside footpaths up through the Porter valley.
