Proud of its steelworks history, Sheffield owns its industrial past, whilst looking towards the future. In fact, Boeing and McLaren Automotive have both opened manufacturing and production facilities; there and the future is bright for the UK’s fifth largest city, as it’s set to become a true Northern Powerhouse.

But it’s not all manufacturing: Sheffield is nothing, if not a city of contrasts. In fact, a third of it is located in the Peak District, which has led to it being dubbed ‘The Outdoor City’ (it’s rumoured there are four trees per person in Sheffield!).
