Sheffield city centre

South Yorkshire

As you may expect with a population of nearly 1.3 million, South Yorkshire has plenty to do, see and enjoy. The region consists of four metropolitan boroughs: Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and City of Sheffield, the latter housing over half of the county’s population. The area boasts a wealth of parks, museums and galleries for you to enjoy, as well as some of the UK’s finest restaurants and public houses. When it comes to shopping venues, South Yorkshire is second to none as the proud bearer of Meadowhall shopping centre - a giant indoor shopping experience located centrally between Sheffield and Rotherham. In an area as vibrant and cosmopolitan as this, you may be surprised to learn that you are only a short journey away from the breathtaking Peak District, with its stunning scenery and unparalleled walking routes. South Yorkshire has an impressive range of accommodation from boutique hotels to camping pods, as well as the customary guest houses and hotels you would expect to find in an area of this size. The M1 and A1(M) run through South Yorkshire, making it easily accessible by car, as well as good rail and coach links.
