Sheffield is as famed for nurturing sport talent as it is for its pioneering steel industry. Athletic superstars like Jessica Ennis have been put through their paces at the English Institute of Sport grounds. Admire shiny stainless steel designs during events at the rejuvenated Millennium Gallery. The Magna Science Adventure Centre, a gigantic former steelworks, is an impressive drinks party backdrop. Team-building activities here like abseiling and bungee jumping are not for the faint-hearted. Aerospace and nuclear research pushes boundaries at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre. Heart of the City regeneration has transformed Sheffield's centre with leafy squares, office towers and glasshouse gardens. Go outward-bound in the nearby Peak District National Park.
