Weston Park Museum, Sheffield

Built on seven hills like Rome, Britain’s steel city’s isolation has earned it the nickname the biggest village in the world. A stay in a Sheffield hotel gives you a taste of the northern grit that’s been the muse for bands including the Human League, Pulp and Arctic Monkeys.

Historic Sheffield

From your Sheffield hotel, head to Bishops’ House at the top of Meersbrook Park. Built around 1500 it’s the city’s oldest timber-framed building. The Millennium Galleries and the Winter Gardens are where to go to find out about Sheffield’s cutlery past and see artworks on loan from Tate Britain.

Art and museums in Sheffield
