Greenest City in England
A major industrial and cultural center, Sheffield is renowned for its green open spaces, art galleries, and state-of-the-art sports facilities. Unlike most other major urban centers in the world, this city’s trees outnumber the human population approximately three to one. Steel is everywhere in Sheffield, though the steel industry that once made the city famous is long gone. No longer the site of world-famous steel mills and forges, Sheffield now features modern steel-framed buildings, rising against the skyline. Working hard to reinvent itself, the city’s economy is now based on services, shopping, and education, which is closely connected to the region’s distinguished universities. A large student population fuels the city’s vibrant nightlife and music festival scene. Add Sheffield and other United Kingdom destinations to your travel plans using our United Kingdom trip planner.
