Life in Sheffield:
Sheffield has a world top 100 university, ranked number 1 in the Russell Group for student experience, and is home to an array of theatres, museums, art galleries, breweries and independent cinemas. There are lots of restaurants across the city, regular craft, food and drink, continental and international markets and an antiques quarter stacked with vintage stores. Sheffield was previously named the UK’s best-value city by TripAdvisor and the average cost of housing per month is nearly 50% lower than in London. What’s more, outdoor types will love the fact that two thirds of the city is green space. Sheffield has over 250 parks, woodlands and gardens, roughly two million trees, and moorlands and rocky ridges in the Peak District on the west of the city. We find living in Sheffield is cultured, affordable and green.
