One of the most geographically diverse and largest cities in Europe, Sheffield is a city of hills (at least 7), rivers (5), trees (around 2 million), outdoor life, the Peak District (over a third of this national park lies within the city's boundary), and there are thousands of acres of parks, gardens and woodlands.

Sheffield is especially renowned for steel and cutlery, snooker, art & design, music and sport (including the world’s oldest football club) but what we like most about Sheffield is its warmth and friendliness.
