Trains to Sheffield

Sheffield isn't just celebrated for its history of cutting-edge industry and innovative music. With masses of green space and suburbs that merge into the Peak District, the city is also famous for its surroundings - the spectacular Stanage Edge, with stunning views over the Hope Valley, is barely 20 minutes from the city centre. Meanwhile, an independent spirit and a large student population keep small shops, pubs and restaurants thriving alongside big-name retailers.

Visiting Sheffield

As you leave Sheffield station you’re naturally drawn uphill towards the city centre. The best route is through the light-filled lobby of the Millennium Galleries, where you’ll find a permanent exhibition of Sheffield metalwork alongside special art and photography shows. The lobby connects to the Winter Gardens, an elegant, wood-framed conservatory filled with exotic plants and cafes. Either side of the Winter Gardens are the Peace Gardens, a popular square that hosts music and food events, and Tudor Square, home to the Crucible and Lyceum theatres.

For a dose of Sheffield’s independent spirit, head to Division Street in the city centre, or explore Sharrow Vale and Abbeydale Road to the south – they’re all full of quirky bars, cafes and shops. To the north of the city centre is Kelham Island, a rapidly redeveloping industrial district with an interactive museum of industry and several award-winning real ale pubs.

If you’re looking for a trip to the countryside, you won’t even need a car. The Hope Valley line from Sheffield station will take you through some glorious Peak District scenery, stopping at pleasant villages like Hathersage and Edale – perfect starting points for a circular day walk.
