Sheffield is England’s fourth-largest city, with the wealth of facilities you would expect to find in a major city, yet it’s compact, welcoming and accessible. The lively city centre is within easy walking distance of the main university campus.
Sheffield is also one of the UK’s most fascinating cities from a cultural perspective, including some truly inspiring architecture and featuring a variety of museums and galleries.
Shefﬁeld has been called the UK’s greenest city; there are 50 public parks and 170 woodlands within the city boundary, many in the immediate vicinity of the city centre.
