Getting Around Sheffield

Sheffield is the city on seven hills, which might make it seem intimidating to get around, but it couldn't be easier. Plus there are some great views from those hills! 

Luckily, the Festival sites all within walking distance but if you need to get further afield here are best ways to get around Sheffield. 

Russell's Bicycle Shed
