According to the Ad Bureau, Sheffield has the highest ratio of trees to people in Europe! Perhaps it’s all the photosynthesis going on that has led to the city being put on the map.
Despite its smaller size, Sheffield has had some huge exports including Pulp, Arctic Monkeys, Sean Bean and The Full Monty whom all originate from the area. In fact, it’s Sheffield’s community atmosphere that has led it to be officially the happiest city in the UK. TCSG’s 2013 study found that a third of the people of Sheffield were happy every day of the week.
It’s also internationally renowned for its breweries. In 2014, The New York Times modestly tipped Sheffield as “the world’s best beer city” with special mention to the Kelham Island a riverside neighbourhood where out of use steel works have born a flourishing micro-brewery scene. The Kelham Island Tavern itself is the only put to have been named CAMRA’s National Pub of the Year twice in a row.
Sheffield also has an impressive history to celebrate. From the city’s ‘Woman of Steel’ memorial for the ladies who manned the munitions factories during world war one and two, to the recent visit from Inter Milan and football legend Pele, to commemorate the 150th birthday of the world’s oldest football side.
