Travel to Sheffield

Check out some of best things to see and do in and around the city, then arrange for a cheap car share to take you there…
What to see and do in Sheffield
Given Sheffield's industrial heritage, one could be forgiven for assuming that old factories and tenement buildings dominate the city landscape. In truth, however, nearly two thirds of the area consists of green space, and Sheffield proudly boasts the highest 'trees to people' ratio in Europe.
You can get your green fix at the award winning Winter Garden
, which houses over 2,500 plants in the heart of the city. And with free admission, you really can't go wrong with a trip to Europe's largest urban glasshouse.
Once you've had your little slice of nature, stroll along to the nearby Millennium Gallery
and view the stunning exhibitions, including metalwork collections and contemporary art – completely free of charge.
If your culture fix leaves feeling a bit peckish, head along to the nearby Moor Market, where over 90 traders are busy manning their food stalls under the one roof. Considered to be one of the UK's best indoor markets, it offers everything from live crabs and lobsters to fresh cuts of meat and a wide range of international cuisine.
Nearly a third of the city forms part of the stunning Peak District National Park, so you need not venture far to find yourself surrounded by lush valleys and quaint villages. Of course, it becomes all the more affordable if you're enjoying cheap travel through a lift share. Stop by the village of Barlow
for a pub lunch, or head further afield to the vibrant market towns of Ashbourne
. The latter is home to the magnificent Chatsworth House
, the perfect place to spend an afternoon. Tour the sprawling home and view its vast art collections, or stroll around the 105-acre gardens which have served as filming locations for several popular shows and movies. The house itself, for instance, served as Mr. Darcy's residence in Pride & Prejudice.
