What the experts say: Sheffield, like many other northern cities, has been under-catered for a long time. There are wonderful blends of communities– families, a lot of industry and office workers and two large universities – so there is a wide range of demographics.
“In some cities, the campuses or student population live quite far out of the centre, the major suburban areas are way outside or there are low amounts of city centre housing, but Sheffield benefits from having lots of people within an easy commute of the centre. There’s a big residential population that stays in the city centre all through the week, which is good.”
“It is not as large as Manchester or Liverpool so you can get around on foot, and there are different districts with a lot going on. It has a full calendar of activities, including the World Snooker Championships, and is well known for lots of theatre productions. There’s a good network of hotels and it is well positioned in the country so it gets lots of conferencing and other bits like that as well.
“Sheffield is a thriving city with a very can-do, will-do attitude.” - Chris Hill, New World Trading Company
