Sheffield is more than metalwork! (though it is quite proud of that too!)
So, first of all, Sheffield is not the most touristy of northern English industrial cities, but if you do happen to spend a little time there, you might want to head to the Millennium Galleries first! It's not huge, but it is a great way to learn about Sheffield's industrial past as well as see some nice art/artifacts. Also, the main galleries and Gardens are free! It's literally just up the hill from the train station, so it is easy to get to as well!
The Metalwork Gallery is my favourite, since it showcases the metalwork of Sheffield, which includes some great pieces of steel and silver. There is usually a temporary exhibit on display as well as their permanent ones, which usually has a small admission fee, but it is worth it to see displays that started in London.
Also, the Winter Garden and Peace Garden are connected with the Galleries. They are great to walk through and see the towering palms above your head. Otherwise, just sit with a coffee and people-watch! [more]
