A third of Sheffield actually sits within the stunning Peak District National Park, making it the only major UK city to boast a national park actually within its boundary. Add to that over 200 parks, woodlands and gardens and you have one of the greenest cities in Europe.
This unique proposition really adds to the quality of life in Sheffield, allowing city dwellers the opportunity to take a break from the urban scrawl and escape to the great outdoors whenever they want/need to. Walkers and runners love the city’s moors, ancient woods and winding valleys, while Sheffield’s challenging hills entice road cyclists and mountain bikers alike. Meanwhile, anyone who climbs seriously will already know of the city’s reputation for grit, as the Sheffield- Derbyshire border straddles one of the longest gritstone outcrops in the world, the iconic Stanage Edge.
