Sheffield Hartshead Square
It was during the heady days of the Industrial Revolution, two centuries ago, that Sheffield first rose to prominence as a world centre for steel production. Sheffield Steel became famous for its quality, used primarily for cutlery. The Sheffield name was a mark of distinction for any item on which it was stamped. Those days are long gone, although the steel remains in the form of soaring office blocks and towers, but the old mills, warehouses and foundries have evolved into trendy nightclubs and ‘industrial chic’ office and residential spaces.
The old industrial landscapes of Sheffield have been incorporated into its modern life rather than simply swept away, and this has added hugely to the fascination of the city for many of its visitors. More visitors, however, means greater demand for parking in Sheffield, especially in the city centre.
There are many great attractions here, from the solid old industrial museums and exhibition spaces to ultra-modern art galleries showcasing contemporary works, and some of the best clubs, pubs and live music venues in the country. You'll be right in middle of it all, close to the best attractions and shopping malls.
