Area Overview

Sheffield is situated in South Yorkshire, and is one of England’s most populated cities. Famous for its production of stainless steel during the 19th century, today Sheffield is both a shopping and entertainment destination. Some of the heritage centres have been incorporated within the old industrial sites, whilst many of the newer entertainments are situated in state-of-the-art modern buildings. The city’s two universities, University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University, bring many young people to the city each year. It also boasts two professional football teams, Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday, both of whom have won the top-league and the FA Cup.
