My home town - Sheffield.

Extracts from this document...


I live in Sheffield, which has loads of really great things to see and do. The entertainment is spread all over the city but Sheffield has lots of busses and trams... which are always on time! If you want to shop - great - there is lots of places for that. Start on Chapel Walk, then up Fargate to Orchard Square.

Either up Division Street, down The Moor, or the Peace Gardens. ...read more.

Valley Centertainment has all the big food restaurants that Meadowhall has- with a few additions. It also has a night-club if that's what you like. Sheffield Arena is really good -if any show or performance is happening- it's a gigantic place and some tickets aren't that expensive!
