Sheffield City Breaks

Perhaps most famous for steel production, Sheffield is often passed over as a place of interest or holiday destination. There is, however, so much more to the city than cutlery and snooker. The area has a long and remarkable history that has witnessed human activity for nearly 13,000 years. The Industrial revolution saw the settlement’s rise to prominence when it became a hugely important hub of manufacture. There are many archaic buildings and artifacts dotted throughout the city, with the Town Hall, the Cathedral, the churches at Ecclesfield and Bradfield and the Abbeysfield Industrial Hamlet all being listed as Grade I historical buildings of interest. Book a city break with Best Western to experience this underrated city’s charm first hand.

Top Attractions:

  • The Crucible Theatre
  • Weston Park Museum
  • Lyceum Theatre
  • Sheffield City Hall
  • Sheffield Cathedral

Europe’s Greenest City

The impressive number of parks and open spaces dotted among the wonderful architecture has earned the city the title: ‘the greenest city in Europe,’ a wonderful quality to find in a busy city, particularly in the summer when Sheffield’s streets and parks are buzzing with activity and excitement.

It is the perfect destination for a city break as there is such a variety of sights and activities on offer. You are guaranteed a wonderful city stay with any of our beautiful Best Western hotels in the area.

Sheffield is recommended because:

  • The Crucible theatre
  • Traditional Heritage Museum
  • The Botanical Gardens
  • Tropical Butterfly House, Wildlife and Falconry Centre

Booking a short break in Sheffield will put you slap bang in the middle of England. It’s a great launching pad to explore the beautiful green countryside of Yorkshire as well as farther afield.

During your stay it is essential to visit the world-famous Crucible Theatre, home to the most important event in professional snooker, the World Championship. If you happen to be visiting in April, make sure you pay the venue a visit and if you are really lucky, you might catch maverick Ronnie O’Sullivan defending his title. At other times of year, experimental plays and performances are often held there. The theatre is known for its intimate nature and was awarded the Barclay’s ‘Theatre of the Year Award.’ It is a wonderful Grade II listed building.

Sheffield is a highly popular shopping centre. Split into three main shopping districts, The Moor, Orchard Square and Fargate, the city centre has something for everyone and can easily cater for a broad array of shopaholics from a variety of backgrounds.

The city comes alive at night and is home to much alternative culture, ranging from iconic traditional pubs, including the Bowery pub on Devonshire Street (run by ex-Arctic Monkeys’ star and local Andy Nicholson) or, in contrast, The Devonshire Arms, an award-winning gastro pub, famed for its food and fun. It has even been named 'Favourite Gastro Pub' and, impressively, 'Eat Sheffield Restaurant of the Year.'

If you fancy something a bit more cultural, head to the Traditional Heritage Museum where you’ll see a number of relics and displays that tell the story of life and work in nineteenth-century Sheffield. The Millenium Galleries should certainly be visited by any lovers of art and history. This intoxicating space is run by Museums Sheffield, who are also responsible for Weston Park Museum and Graves Gallery, and pays tribute to Sheffield’s famous metal-working past. It also has a particularly strong 20th-century British Collection.

No matter what you are looking for in a British city break, there is something for everyone in Sheffield. Get in touch to book your Sheffield hotel today!
