Sheffield is a historical city in South Yorkshire, and the second-largest city in Yorkshire and The Humber, with a population of around 584,000. Once a key player in the Industrial Revolution thanks to its steel-making heritage, today Sheffield's economy is undergoing a strong regeneration with many businesses setting up in the city. Sheffield has been named among the top ten best cities to locate a business today. Thanks to its location near the Peak District, tourism is also a big contributor to the local economy.
The city has a rich, longstanding sporting heritage and is home to the world's oldest football club, Sheffield F.C. and the world's oldest football ground, Sandygate. The games between the city's two rival professional clubs, Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday, are known as the Steel City derby. Sheffield is also home to the World Snooker Championship at the renowned Crucible Theatre. There are also notable events and music festivals in the city each year such as the popular Tramlines festival.
A large part of the city boasts a stunning backdrop against the Peak District National Park with 61% of Sheffield's area being made up of green space. There are over 250 parks, woodlands and gardens in the city to explore. Other notable landmarks and areas of interest include Manor Lodge, Sheffield Town Hall and the Botanical Gardens. Sheffield is a major retail centre and is home to many high street stores, department stores and designer boutiques as well as smaller independent shops.
