Largely hilly and completely landlocked, South Yorkshire was once known as the industrial heartland of northern England. Having reinvented itself in the last few decades, the region is now noted for exceptional shopping options, family tourist attractions, and a vibrant nightlife. Passionate about music, sports, and art, the locals are always quick to point out that their region contains some of the country’s finest museums and Victorian monuments. When you visit South Yorkshire, be sure not to limit your itinerary to Sheffield, a city famous for its steel industry. Escape the urban crowds on a tour through the region’s lush meadows, rolling hills, and leafy forests, either on foot or by bicycle.
