Sheffield

 

Sheffield is more of a modern city than a historic one, with examples of good recent architecture awaiting the visitor. Large areas of urban parkland and woodland help to make a welcoming environment, and many areas of the city have wildlife and plants of special interest. Formal and indoor gardens’ are also spread throughout the city, including the Peace Gardens and the Botanical Gardens, and there is a large collection of farm animals at Groves Park to entertain the children. There is a flourishing arts scene waiting to welcome the culturally inclined visitor, with theatres, four art galleries and several museums, The industrial heritage of the city is celebrated at museums such as Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet - built on a site used for iron forging for hundreds of years, it is a working museum using water power to produce steel.

Sheffield travel


Weston Park Museum is a more traditional collection, but again aims to entertain children as well as adults, though with more standard works. Sheffield also has a Walk of Fame, echoing that in Hollywood, but celebrating its own homegrown stars. Music lovers are catered for whatever their tastes, with the Sheffield Arena welcoming players and musicians from all over the world.
