Things to do in Sheffield

When you visit Sheffield you’ll find a vibrant cultural mixture. The city has cutting-edge urban living, as well as a strong industrial and manufacturing heritage. It's surrounded by lovely countryside making it a great base for climbing, mountain-biking and hiking.

In this post-industrial city, history is never far away. Kelham Island Museum explores the engineering and steelmaking that dominated Sheffield up to the late 20th century. Visiting the museum is probably one of the most enjoyable things to do in Sheffield. You can get really hands-on with its exciting interactive displays.

For a quick fix of nature inside the city, stroll round the Sheffield Botanical Gardens where there are 5,000+ species of plants to admire. Or for a moment of elegant calm visit the Winter Garden with its futuristic design. Alternatively, sit back and enjoy the entertainment at the Lyceum or Crucible theatres, whether it’s the latest in drama productions, comedy, music, opera, ballet or even the snooker. The theatres are an integral part of this buzzing city of culture.
