Sheffield is a city and metropolitan borough of South Yorkshire, England. Its name derives from the River Sheaf, which runs through the city. Historically a part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, the city has grown from its largely industrial roots to encompass a wider economic base.

During the 19th century, Sheffield gained an international reputation for steel production. Many innovations were developed locally, including crucible and stainless steel, fuelling an almost tenfold increase in the population during the Industrial Revolution.

Explore every part of the city and you'll find industrial heritage or great cultural attractions, live entertainment, sport, and lots of shops and places to eat.

You will also find out why Sheffield prides itself on its parks and gardens, and beautiful countryside that you'll find just a few minutes away from the city centre. Sheffield has an abundance of museums and galleries, leisure activities and places for all the family.

Sheffield is a great place to visit and as a base to see South Yorkshire and Derbyshire, a third of the city is in the Peak District.

Sheffield has two large theatres, the Lyceum Theatre and the Crucible Theatre, which together with the smaller Studio Theatre make up the largest theatre complex outside London. There are four major art galleries, including the Millennium Galleries, which hosts the collection of the Guild of St George founded by John Ruskin, and visiting exhibitions from the Victoria and Albert Museum and Tate collections. The Sheffield Walk of Fame in the City Centre honours famous Sheffield residents past and present in a similar way to the Hollywood version
