Over 60,000 students live in Sheffield, making it a true student city. From independent shops to student bars, there’s something for everyone here. Sheffield is made up of green spaces like parks, public gardens, and the countryside. So if you’re looking for a quiet, sunny place to study in peace, you’re never far from somewhere pretty to relax in. This city is a great choice if you like the perks of living in the city combined with the outdoorsy experience. It boasts 30 cinema screens, 70 music venues and a knife with 2,000 blades on display in the Kelham Island Museum. You might expect the latter from a city that was built around the steel industry.
Not only that, this lush, green and 4th largest city hosts a number of festivals, like the international documentary film festival called Sheffield Doc/Fest, Off the Shelf (a festival of words), Sheffield Adventure Film Festival, Sheffield Food Festival, Peace in the Park music festival and the Festival of the Mind, a celebration of the cerebral hosted by the University of Sheffield in collaboration with the city’s creative community. Then there’s the 3-day Tramlines Festival, the big music festival in July which books international stars like Dizzee Rascal, The Dandy Warhols, George Clinton, Kelis, Jurassic 5, and Catfish and the Bottlemen!
For the fitness enthusiast, you’re never far from a hill. The meadows, dales and the high ground of the Peak District National Park are a 20-minute bus ride away from the city centre. When it gets just a bit chilly, head to the Winter Garden, housed in one of the largest glasshouses in the UK. Or to one of the city’s museums. The Kelham Island Museum and Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet reflect Sheffield’s industrial past when most works were manual, sweaty and sometimes brutal. Stroll over to the Devonshire Quarter, full of character and cafés that offer thali (Indian) dishes, specialist bhajis, and Mexican food, among other cuisines. The Quarter is noted for clothes stores although its most famous shop is Rare & Racy, which is a trove of books, records, old maps, and prints.
If you’re in the mood for shopping, Sheffield has a huge out-of-town shopping centre and a number of shopping quarters and markets. Give the Peddler Night Market a visit which takes place on the first weekend of each month and pops up in various locations. Live bands, delicious smells of street food, with chefs from The Hip Hop Chip Shop cooking battered gherkins, halloumi cheese, and fries, this is an event you definitely cannot miss if you live at Sheffield.
