Car hire in Sheffield

Sports enthusiasts and culture buffs have traditionally flocked to Sheffield, as it has a number of top-flight football teams and around 1,000 heritage buildings. There is also a great selection of fascinating museums, some of which are themed around the city’s industrial heritage. Exploring this region of central England is easy using a self-drive car. All the leading international vehicle suppliers maintain offices here, but tourists should compare cheap car hire in Sheffield for the best rates.

Why visit

The Weston Park Museum, close to Sheffield’s town centre, boasts collections of archaeology exhibits, while the Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet is a more modern heritage centre with historic workshops and equipment. Two football teams and one rugby team have home grounds here, and the Crucible Theatre in the city centre hosts the annual World Snooker Championships. West Street is at the heart of a vibrant leisure district, boasting lots of pubs, restaurants and clubs.

Transport

Sheffield is the crossover point for most of the nearby rail and road networks. One of the UK’s principal motorways, the M1, passes east of the city. There are also lots of A-class roads that are great for those who have booked Sheffield car hire. Several bus companies run routes to outlying suburbs, but services farther afield are sporadic. The rail station has direct trains from London’s St Pancras Station, while Doncaster-Sheffield Airport, the principal gateway for people flying to South Yorkshire, is 20 miles from the city.

What to see and do

The western outskirts of Sheffield sit next to the fabulous vistas of the Peak District. Using car rental in Sheffield is easily the best option for reaching famous draws that include the Chatsworth House stately home and the spa towns of Buxton and Matlock. The Blue John cavern is near the fairytale-like Castleton village, where Peveril Castle stands, attracting millions of visitors every year. South of Sheffield, the crooked spire of St Mary’s Church in Chesterfield is the English equivalent of the Tower of Pisa.
