Elsewhere in the city, those bitten by the sporting bug can watch rival team Sheffield Wednesday who play at Hillsborough stadium. In 1989, a game at the stadium between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest sadly saw the death of 96 people crushed by the vast amounts of spectators. Today the event is remembered by not only everybody in the city but also in the UK. The stadium is also much safer today.
The city is also home to professional basketball, ice hockey, rugby, and speedway teams, as well as the Crucible Theatre, home to the British Snooker Championships.
The city centre features a number of architecturally stunning buildings. The City Hall and Town Hall are both impressive buildings, whilst the Sheffield Wheel (a large Ferris wheel), and the water features outside of the main railway station provide modern concepts.
The citys Botanical Gardens provide a touch of nature amidst the industrial city. Those looking for a little more nature need only look as far as the nearby Peak District which provides various terrains to walk, run, cycle, and climb across.
If a visit with nature seems a little daunting, guests at the Copthorne Hotel Sheffield can hop on the citys tramline and visit the Meadowhall shopping centre with its multitude of shops and stores.
