About Sheffield

A picture of the Peak district is

Sheffield is one of England’s greenest cities with parts of the Peak District National Park within its boundary. Celebrated country houses like Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall reflect a long and proud history. It has more trees per person than any other city in Europe.

It may be best known for steel and manufacturing  but it has a growing reputation as the number one destination for outdoor enthusiasts, from climbers to cyclists, walkers to glider pilots.

Culturally there is an eclectic music scene with new bands emerging and Tramlines festival every summer. Sheffield DocFest hosts international films and world-renowned experts, and Off the Shelf literary festival in October showcases literary talent with big names and emerging authors participating. The Crucible and Lyceum theatres host touring plays as well as the World Snooker Championships.

Little Kelham and a Kelham Island offers sustainable housing and the  buzz of a growing community. There are more micro-breweries springing up than anywhere else in England as well as museums, galleries and theatres.  There’s everything from football to ice hockey, rugby to swimming.

It is a city of great opportunity, no matter if you live here, work here or come along for the 2020 15th Global Branding conference at Sheffield Hallam University. We look forward to showing you around!
