Newest Review: ... willing to go on a little 15 minute tram ride, you can get to one of the main shopping destinations in Sheffield, which is Meadowhall mall/shopping centre. This is quite similar to the Trafford Centre, and features loads of highstreet shops, as well as a cinema and food court. It does get incredibly busy on weekends though, which is why it has earned it's nickname of 'Meadowhell' - still ... more

I am originally from Cheshire, but I've actually been living in Sheffield for the past year (I was very familiar with the city even before I moved here) and it's actually a pretty interesting place to live. I practically live in the city centre, so it's really only a short walk to get to the high street, so I suppose I will be basing most of this review around the actual city centre, rather than the outlying areas. Shopping... I think Sheffield is a fantastic little shopping destination, the city centre might not be as big as Manchester, but we still have a great range of high street and boutique shops in the city. I really like the fact ... Read the complete review

Let me start by saying I am not Yorkshire born and bred so this is actually a fairly unbiased review. I am from the Lake District originally and came here to go to University so the relocation was not as a result of a strong desire to live in Sheffield particularly. However, here I am 8 years later! So what made me stay? Nightlife Sheffield's nightlife, mush like the city itself is a great balance between that of a massive city and a small town. We have some great larger clubs (Sheffield hosted Gatecrasher for many years until a fire at the venue put a stop to it) and some smaller, boutique late bars. To say there is variety would be an understatement. ... Read the complete review

Sheffield like most cities has good and bad points. Transport There are good transport links to sheffield and lots of ways of getting around. The M1 offers a quick way to get to sheffield. The national express runs coaches to here and there is a large train station. While in Sheffield there are two main bus companies first and stagecoach that run buses around the city. The day savers can be expensive though at £4 on first (not sure about stagecoach). Another option is the supertram there are three routes yellow, blue and purple. A day rider on the tram costs £3.50. Driving round sheffield can be a nightmare. There are few parking ... Read the complete review

Sheffield is the place where i was born and have lived here all my life. I am a Yorkshire lass, born and bred (and i have had a few comments about my accent!!!! Apparently i have a broad Yorkshire accent!). Over the years Sheffield has had its ups and downs, just as much as any other city, but with the re-development of the town centre it has maybe put a lot of people off from coming to Sheffield and still enjoy what is on offer. Sheffield has fabulous transport links via the motorway and public transport. It has a brilliant bus service that links up with various other towns, villages and cities in South Yorkshire and the services are fairly ... Read the complete review

MY REVIEW IS ABOUT SHOPPING IN SHEFFIELD CITY CENTRE. I visited Sheffield and to be totally honest didn't really like it. I had always thought that it would be a pretty large city with a range of great shops. My aim of the visit was to go to Sheffields museum to see the Vivienne Westwood exhabition. After getting off the coach my first impression was that it looked a clean city, pretty modern with loads of water features! We visited the museum and it was really good. It was clean and interesting and well kept. I would recommend it to anyone. Afterwards we went to look around the town for a bite to eat. Walking into the town we were ... Read the complete review
