Cycle in the picturesque green spaces of Sheffield

Sheffield, South Yorkshire

The city of Sheffield offers plenty of green space for nature lovers, not to mention the Peak District National Park.

A whopping two-thirds of Sheffield is green space, partly due to the fact that the Peak District lies within its city boundary. You can see this for yourself on the Peak Park Anniversary Cycle Route, which takes you through the city centre, past its Gothic, and somewhat awe-inspiring, town hall and along the Porter Brook to the Forge Dam Café, where we strongly advise you to stop for an ice cream.

From here the way starts to get steeper as you head on up to Burbage Moor and out to Hathersage in the Peak District, where the spectacular views make all your hard work worthwhile. Don’t feel like you have to venture outside the city to get back to nature though: the oasis that is the Winter Garden contains over 2,500 plants from around the world, while the city’s Grade II-listed Botanic Gardens cover nineteen acres and are perfect to mosey around on a sunny day.
