    Meet Davidson

    What I like about Sheffield is it’s really cosy. It’s so different to London. It’s a lot easier to find friends here – people are really welcoming.

  • Chelsea

    Meet Chelsea

    I’m from Mansfield and we used to visit Sheffield at the weekend. The Millennium Gallery stood out on those early visits, and the Winter Garden, the Peace Gardens, that whole area. When I arrived here, meeting people helped me discover things.

  • Hertha Ayrton STEM Centre

    Meet Joel

    I first came to Sheffield when me and my friends travelled up for a gig at the Leadmill. Walking from the hotel to the venue I looked at the rolling hills and thought, ‘Wow, this is so different to my normal environment.’

    Meet Nathan

    Ponds Forge Leisure Centre is right near the university. It’s one of my favourite things about the city – it has the exact classes and machines I want, and it’s massive.

    Meet Lucy

    I like living in Kelham Island because it’s quiet. When I first moved here my room faced the river, and I could see ducks on the water and the Riverside pub opposite.

    Meet Chammy

    Sheffield’s a nice, big, vibrant city. My little one’s nine, and being close to a place where there’s lots to do is great.

    Meet Lydia

    There’s so much graffiti here that qualifies as art. I love Pete McKee’s The Snog on Broad Lane. It’s a mural of an old couple kissing – a really colourful statement piece.
