Sheffield – The Steel Centre of the World
Famed for its industry and innovation, the green, modern cityscape now replaces the smoking chimneys from the industrial revolution. There’s a friendly, independent and alternative spirit that can be hard to find in other cities alongside a thriving cultural scene.
Sheffield’s Must SeesThe Millennium Gallery is Sheffield’s premier destination for art, craft and design. Here you can see some of Sheffield’s unique heritage, including the metalwork which made the city world famous, alongside contemporary art and design exhibitions. The gallery also hosts some of the finest touring exhibitions in the country.
The impressive multi award-winning Winter Garden is one of the largest temperate glasshouses to be built in the UK during the last hundred years, and has created a stunning green world with more than 2,500 plants from around the world. With direct access from Millennium Galleries and Millennium Square, the Winter Garden is the perfect oasis in the heart of England’s fourth largest city.
One of the oldest buildings in the city, the Cathedral sits in its ancient heart. Stones from an 11th–12th century Norman church can be seen in a dog-tooth pattern set in the east wall. It boosts its own independent café, 1554, serving delicious homemade fare making it a delightful spot for lunch in the city centre.
The Perfect Day Trip
Chatsworth House situated just 18 miles south of the city, is one of Britain’s most popular stately homes and has probably been used in almost as many films as it has had visitors! It is believed that Jane Austen may have based her idea of Pemberley on Chatsworth House and written the novel while in Bakewell.
“The eye was instantly caught by Pemberley House, situated on the opposite side of the valley into which the road into some abruptness wound.” It’s renowned for the quality of its art, landscape and hospitality. Today, Chatsworth contains works of art that span 4,000 years from ancient Roman and Egyptian.
