We are the Sheffield Publicity Department, and we’d like to welcome you to our lovely, ugly city.*
We’re not a normal tourist agency. We don’t really do Days Out. We’re not interested in What's On, in Where's Hot, in the Latest Bars and Clubs. We couldn't care less about shopping. You can find these things in any city in the world.
Instead, we’re here to tell you about something else: the things that make Sheffield beautiful, and amazing, and unique. The hills, the people, the industry and the nature. The reasons we love the city. And what’s more, we’re going to show you how to find them. Maps to the best views. Guides to the most beautiful terraced streets. Postcards of the sunsets.
We’re a dream tourist board, the kind that you always wished for. And we’re open, now, for all of your enquiries.
