Sheffield - make the most of the outdoor city
Make the most of our outdoor city, whether you stay in the city limits or travel beyond, there's plenty of things to do...
Being on the edge of the Peak District, the city is obsessed with climbing. The Foundry is just one of the many centres in Sheffield equipped with cutting-edge climbing walls and equipment.
Ponds Forge International Sports Centre has an Olympic size swimming pool, which is great for serious swimmers and water slides for the rest of us!
Sheffield Round Walk
The 15-mile loop at the southwestern edge of the city takes in leafy parkland, woodland streams and pretty suburbs.
Looking to go mountain biking? Wharncliffe Woods is the place for you - it's an entire area of woods dedicated to just that.
The Peak District is a favourite for fell runners. Classic races include the High Peak Marathon and a 42 mile night time navigation endurance challenge for teams of four.
Bouldering & Climbing
The real source of Sheffield's passion for climbing is the nearby Peak District. Burbage South offers amateurs and experienced climbers plenty of challenges. Make sure you go with an accredited climbing school.
