A City like no other…
A city of stunning landscapes – the greenest in Europe, creative, welcoming, stubbornly independent, rich in culture and history, but with a modern outlook.
The UK Peace Index 2013, a study using Home Office data, found Sheffield to be England's safest major city.
Sheffield offers so much more than the usual attributes you would associate with a big city. Its strategic location at the heart of the UK, strong transport links, diversity of offer, two Universities, higher education colleges, competitive house prices, diverse cultural offer, high quality of life and sense of place, including the Peak District National Park, make Sheffield an attractive place in which to live, work, visit, study and invest.
Sheffield is England’s fourth largest city offering the best of both worlds. It’s a vibrant student city but within easy reach of vast open countryside, making it the most geographically diverse city in England. It is also England’s greenest city with some 150 woodlands and 50 public parks. It is on the edge of the Peak District National Park and offers a fantastic high quality lifestyle – an easy place to get a healthy balance between work and play.
This makes it an attractive place to live, providing an excellent supply of skilled workers. More than 2.1 million people live in Sheffield’s peak 60 minute recruitment catchment area providing a ready and accessible workforce.
Sheffield and the surrounding areas also offer a fantastic range of properties, from new build to Grade I listed, with the average house price being £156,832 and private rents averaging £548 per month.
Since 2013 prices have risen by 4% with key demand being in the S7, S10 and S11 postcode areas.
Sheffield is teeming with entertainment and cultural attractions. From award-winning theatre to striking art spaces, arena-filling concerts to independent cinema, café culture to fine dining, the great outdoors to inner city pampering, whatever you want to do Sheffield has it covered.
Only three miles outside Sheffield City Centre lies the largest shopping centre in Yorkshire and the ninth largest in the United Kingdom - Meadowhall. Boasting more than 280 stores and restaurants, bars and entertainment venues, Meadowhall truly is a shopping mecca offering something for everyone.
