The Outdoor City showcases the very best of Sheffield; the proximity between city culture, outdoor adventures, tranquil views, playful communities and rural escapes.

It is Sheffield’s unique physicality and the quality of life that this brings, together with the unparalleled strength of the climbing, running, walking and biking communities, which set the City apart from anywhere else in the UK.

By working together as one city; where outdoor enthusiasts, businesses, local authorities, land owners, community groups, education and health organisations talk about Sheffield as The Outdoor City we can challenge outdated perceptions and grow our reputation both nationally and internationally.

Written by enthusiasts from Sheffield's outdoor communities, The Outdoor City website shares the best routes, profiles local makers and doers, and offers tips on where to relax after a day spent exploring.
