Things to do in Sheffield this weekendSheffield Winter Garden

Sheffield is arguably one of the most interesting cities in the North – it’s crammed with culture, exhibitions, clubs, bars, museums and more besides!  Anyone stuck for things to do in Sheffield really won’t need to look too far, particularly as it’s one of the most tourist-friendly cities in the county – and what’s more, there’s far too much to cram into just one day!  Therefore, it’s well worth looking into places to visit and things to do at night over a weekend – whether you’re into culture, games, or simply having a few drinks, Sheffield activities have them all.

The city is well-known for its resplendent Winter Garden and the Sheffield Botanical Gardens, both of which make for a fantastic walk if natural beauty is on your radar.  For those of us interested in entertainment, Sheffield is chock-a-block with great bars, independent eateries and a few theatres of its very own – the most famous of which is The Crucible, known for hosting the best of The Bard on stage as well as being the home – arguably – of UK snooker.  Anyone interested in things to do in Sheffield this weekend more centred around history and education could make a trip to one of the city’s many museums – whether you’re taking a look at the City Hall or Kelham Island Museum, Sheffield is an industrial city with a stack of history and charm to it that has been preserved for generations – and for generations of people to enjoy and learn about for years to come.
