Sheffield is a city with character, blending elegant Victorian architecture with modern activities. The area is bursting with culture and entertainment, including theatres, museums, galleries, pubs & clubs, music and world-class sports facilities. Sheffield was named the first “National City of Sport” and has Europe’s biggest artificial ski-slope resort. Most all of these attractions are within walking distance of each other, making it a great destination for students.
