South Yorkshire: a county of contrasts

From the bustling hub of Sheffield city centre, to the peace and tranquillity of the Peak District; South Yorkshire has it all. Picturesque villages like Sprotborough and Harthill offer inhabitants the seclusion of rural England within easy reach of several thriving towns and cities. While the market town of Penistone is the highest market town in England offering stunning views of the surrounding Pennine hills.

South Yorkshire is a walker’s paradise. It is home to an abundance of natural beauty including hills, valleys, limestone gorges, and plateaus. The Peak District National Park is actually the first area in the UK to gain National Park status. Its convenient location close to the cities of Manchester, Derby, Stoke-on-Trent, and Sheffield has helped to attract millions of visitors every year.
