Although it is a highly populated city in South Yorkshire, many people refer to Sheffield as a village, due to its incredible community feel. Residents can still benefit from city amenities, though - local favourites include the Botanical Gardens and the Millenium Gallery, as well as popular restaurants and bars lining Carver Street, Division Street and West Street. And local treasures can be found around every corner. Uncover quirky style at Antiques Quarter and peruse a charismatic collection of vintage shops.
Living in Sheffield is made easy thanks to its incredible transport links. It has excellent access to the M1, and locals can easily travel to other major cities via rail, too. This is particularly handy for those looking to commute out of town for work, or for pleasure. In fact, 43 direct trains run from Sheffield to London each day, taking about two hours.
