Like many English cities, Sheffield owes its modern day position as a major urban area to its industrial past, having pioneered advances in the production of crucible steel in the 18th century and stainless steel in the early 20th century. Although manufacturing in Sheffield has ceased to be the major industry it once was, the strength of its historical connection to metalwork is the reason the Sheffield United Football Club are still known by their nickname “the blades” and the city’s ice hockey team are named the Sheffield Steelers.
Surprisingly for a city with such a strong industrial heritage, Sheffield has a reputation for being England’s greenest city. Visitors to Sheffield will discover a tree filled town with public parks and gardens, woodlands and plenty of national park land. With more than a third of Sheffield overlapping the stunning Peak District National Park, the city is an excellent destination for hikers and nature lovers.
Sheffield is a pedestrian-friendly city making it easy to get around on foot. Many sites are within walking distance, too.
However, the city is also served by a tram network called Supertram, which offers routes covering 18 miles (29 km) of the city including universities, the Cathedral, sports arenas and many other popular entertainment venues.
Flights to Sheffield are now served by Doncaster Sheffield Airport (Robin Hood Airport) (SZD).
