Car Hire Sheffield
Situated in Yorkshire in the north of England, Sheffield is one of Europe's biggest cities. Some 550,000 people live within the city limits, with about 1.75 million residents in the wider metropolitan area, (South Yorkshire), covering Rotherham, Barnsley, and Doncaster. England's most geographically diverse city, Sheffield is a significant industrial, cosmopolitan and cultural hub characterised by abundant green space, a vibrant culture of creativity, thriving sport facilities, and a long-established cutlery industry.
Car hire in Sheffield gives you great flexibility, as the city is located in the most southerly part of Yorkshire, with Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, and Lincolnshire to the west, south, and east. The cities of Manchester (west), Leeds - Bradford (north), York (north east), Hull (east), and Nottingham (south) are all about an hour's drive away. The position of the M1 motorway, directly beside Meadowhall Shopping Centre to the east of the city centre, adds to the city's accessibility.
This is a particularly beautiful part of England to base yourself. The spectacular Peak District reaches to within the western city boundary, and the South Pennines area is situated just short drive to the north. Within the city, an ambitious regeneration programme means there is much for the visitor to enjoy. Attractions include the largest theatre complex in the country outside London, the Millennium Galleries, and Sheffield Botanical Gardens.
