Once the industrial powerhouse of the world, you might be forgiven for expecting Sheffield to be grey, not green...   

Don't be fooled into thinking Sheffield isn't a city full of wide open spaces, parks, woodland and rural villages, especially as a third of the city lies within the boundaries of the Peak District National Park.

With the Peak District on Sheffield’s doorstep it’s as easy to enjoy an array of outdoor pursuits amongst stunning scenery, as it is to take in the cosmopolitan delights of the city centre.
Why not do both?

Sheffield prides itself on being England’s greenest city with more than 200 parks, woodlands and gardens.

Though every city has a few municipal parks, Sheffield has some that are particularly special. Not only do they boast magnificent landscape architecture and floral displays, but some also second as art spaces offering their own lively programme of events and exhibitions.

Whether it’s a simple stroll, a historic trail or a picnic by one of Sheffied’s five rivers, there are plenty of different opportunities for you to take some time out and take in some nature.
