Inspiration Wednesday – Sheffield

Our Inspiration Wednesday location this week is Sheffield. Sat in South Yorkshire, the city gets its name from the River Sheaf which runs through it. With two popular universities and the UK’s ninth largest shopping centre, Meadowhall, Sheffield is a thriving hub.


With a past of steel production, Sheffield is now popular for new businesses, with many new redevelopments in the last few year and the largest growth of office space having taken place here in 2004.


The city has a thriving nightlife with plenty of gigs, clubs and bars, which has probably played a part in the amount of musical artists to come out of the area! But if you’re after more peace and quiet, the Pennine Hills and Peak District sit just to the west.
