That's a nice collection of city centre photos. Do you have any shots from places like Crookes and Ringinglow?

Fantastic city, some great buildings and the nightlife is superb!

I actually prefer Sheffield to Leeds, it is a more down to earth, and welcoming city in my experiance.

Sensational pics. Ta Muchly....

Never been to Sheffield and never had any great desire to frankly but my mind has changed. Pre-this thread the most exciting thing for me would have been a visit to Park Hill/Hyde Park for a dose of sheer brutality.

Its amazing how British cities all look fantastic as soon as the sun is shining!

Nice pics, the Lyceum is a lovely building, as a side note I always thought Sheffield was better than Leeds, nicer buildings etc

I prefer Sheffield to Brighton but there you go. Crappy comment, why bring Leeds into it?

Nice photos BTW.
