Accommodation for students in Sheffield

Day Trippin'

Sheffield already has a foothold in the Peak District national park, so it would be rude not to explore the moorland landscape and craggy peaks. Climb the Pennine mountains, known as the backbone of England, for stunning walks, cave exploration and pot-holing expeditions.

An hour away over the Pennine Hills beckons the two Premiership soccer sides and indie music scene of Manchester. Widely dubbed the capital of the north, this city is a great day out for international students seeking to mingle with undergraduates from Greater Manchester’s many universities.

Travelling south from Sheffield along the M1 takes explorers to the castle city of Nottingham, home to the legendary Robin Hood of Sherwood Forest. The woodland is fun to explore as is the city centre castle that purports to contain the oldest pub in England, which has been chipped into the boundary rock.
