Your guide to Sheffield

Welcome to Sheffield

One of the most exciting cities in England for art and culture, Sheffield is finally getting the recognition it deserves as a hotbed of creativity. The Steel City’s industrial heritage has long been at the forefront of its identity, and though small artistic scenes have bubbled up over the decades, this down-to-earth, ego-free city has never shouted about it. Now the regeneration of former factory districts such as Kelham Island, where foundries and warehouses have been transformed into galleries, food halls, and microbreweries, has made its vibrant spirit more tangible.

Sheffield has music in its bones, with first-rate clubs featuring the latest up-and-coming acts. There are also experimental theatre, radical cinema, and specialist record labels operating at a high level here. Add to that a thrilling mini renaissance in food and drink, with new-generation venues — from a cocktail bar in a converted former public toilet to fine dining in a shipping container. Throw in brilliant attractions such as the Botanical Gardens, an antiques quarter for independent shopping, plenty of green spaces, and the rugged Peak District National Park on the doorstep, and you’ve more than enough reasons to explore this South Yorkshire town.

The best time to stay in a holiday rental in Sheffield

There’s tons going on all year long in Sheffield. Even if you book one of the area’s apartments on the grimmest, rainiest winter day, the weather will be irrelevant once you’re attuned to the city’s urban rhythms. The Tramlines Festival injects a jolt of energy to the already-lively music scene in July, with the main event at Hillsborough Park, with spin-off sessions at venues including Yellow Arch Studios, a recording studio where many top acts produced albums. Sheffield Doc/Fest in June is a respected international documentary film festival, with screenings from filmmakers around the world, plus exhibitions and discussions. Or aim for Sheffield Modern, an architecture festival with talks and guided walks, in October/November. Sheffield Beer Week has the whole city fizzing with events in March.

Top things to do in Sheffield

Sharrow Vale Road

A shining example of suburban cool, this newly hip neighbourhood a mile from the city centre has experienced an influx of young creatives, some relocating from London. Smart delis, vintage stores, organic food shops, and galleries are keeping apace, making it a fun place to hang out. Nearby Ecclesall Road is awash with independent shops too.


As well as the major art museum, the Millennium Gallery, check out Site Gallery, 99 Mary Street, S1 Artspace, and Bloc Projects for more cutting-edge exhibitions and shows. In May, Open Up sees local artists and creatives open their studio doors to the public.

Microbreweries and pubs

Sheffield is one of the best cities in Europe for enjoying a pint of amber nectar. In its heyday, tiny breweries filled the industrial areas, ready to quench the thirst of craftsmen and metalworkers. Today the scene has evolved and venues are a tad more stylish. Head to Kelham Island for the new breed of real ale microbreweries, and the antiques quarter around Abbeydale Road for cosy heritage pubs.
