I've been to Sheffield a number of times mainly to visit Meadowhall for shopping; watch the athletics at Don Valley Stadium; see a concert or event at the Motorpoint Arena; to make a rare trip into the city centre and see a show at The Lyceum and also to enjoy the leisure pool and water flumes at Ponds Forge International Sports centre.
Until recently, I felt I hadn't given the city centre much justice as I was put off by the tiredness the city appeared to have had. I remember being in Sheffield with work for the day and found the city somewhat depressing and felt it needed a lot of new investment. Following an extensive regeneration programme the city had, I decided to return to explore the city centre with an open mind and learn more about the city of steel! I've had some memorable visits and exploring the fruits of the regeneration along with the important historical links Sheffield has. I look forward to returning again and check out the city's night life!
