Sheffield is a city that truly caters for all tastes. You can choose from a long list of historical attractions, visit one of several great art galleries, or just relax in the outdoors. To learn a little about the city and its industrial heritage, drive your rental car south-west from the city centre along Abbeydale Road South, and visit the Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet. An authentic 18th-century steelworks with waterwheels and original machinery can be found here, along with great displays on the ways in which local steel was produced.
To view some great examples of buildings from Sheffield's days before industrialisation, there are a number of great sites to choose from. The ruins of Beauchief Abbey date back to the 12th century and the stunning Sheffield Cathedral dates back to the 1400s and is still in use to this day. Throughout the city and surrounding area, you will no doubt stumble upon many great historical buildings. Simply driving between attractions with your hire car is often the perfect opportunity to spot some of the many great manors, churches and halls of the past.
A short drive north of the city centre is arguably Sheffield's biggest attraction for tourists. Known as the Sheffield Ski Village, this is the largest artificial outdoor ski centre in Europe, with several ski runs, half pipes and toboggan areas. A great day out regardless of what time of year you are visiting. To avoid the crowds and enjoy the outdoors for yourself, you are in the right place. Simply jump in your hire car and head out of the city in virtually any direction, where you will find rolling green hills, forests and small towns ready to be explored.
