Welcome to Sheffield
The most famous export of Sheffield, in the north of England, may be steel, but the city has transformed itself since the height of its manufacturing days to become a modern city with modern hotels.
The range of hotels in Sheffield suits the needs of most travellers, as in any large city in the UK, although it is advisable to book in advance if a visit coincides with a large event such as the snooker world championships that are hosted in the city.
Top Sheffield Attractions
One of the best examples of modern Sheffield is the Millennium Gallery, where visitors can find four galleries housing artefacts such as artwork and examples of Sheffield’s steel-based industry.
Further works of art, with a focus on the modern, can be found at the Graves Gallery.
Meanwhile, visitors who are looking for more natural sights have the option of the Winter Garden, plus the lawns and fountains of the Peace Gardens nearby.
