4 reasons to visit Sheffield

1. Shopping

Sheffield has an eclectic mix of fashionable high street names as well as quirky independent boutiques. In the heart of the city centre, Fargate offers high street chains like Topshop, John Lewis, Marks & Spencers and more. Located directly west of the city centre is Devonshire Quarter, home to a vibrant mix of electric boutiques, cafes and design shops. Abit further off (but never too far away) is Ecclesall Road, hailed as the bohemian part of town with more local delights.

2. The Food

To put it simply, there is every type of cuisine you could imagine and different price points to suit all wallets. From fine dining to local markets, indian curry to delicious dim sum. And of course, the magnificent Yorkshire pudding. Sheffield is a culinary heaven!

We’ve got a post-up on some of our favourites, check it out here

3. The people

It’s not so grim up north! There’s a reason why Yorkshire is the happiest place in the UK. People here are happy and oh so friendly, and you meet people from different cultures and walks of life that makes it all the more interesting.

4. Beautiful Parks

We’re certainly blessed with some of the most breath-taking natural scenery in the world. We’ve got public gardens (Botanical Gardens, Peace Gardens, and Sheffield Winter Gardens) as well as Peak District National Park. And that’s just the big ones, there are many parks and woods throughout the city and beyond. Come visit Sheffield to discover these for yourself.

Just a few reasons to love Sheffield and book a quick weekend stay to discover these for yourself! Of course, Sheffield has more to offer – but we’ll save that for another time.
