2020 is the year of the staycation and there is no better time to explore the beauty and wonder that is right on our doorstep. Whether you are a local or travelling from another part of the UK, you are invited to enjoy our brand-new initiative ‘Make Yourself at Home Sheffield’. The scheme was set up to support local businesses and communities as life slowly moves past lockdown while remembering to adhere to the safety guidelines and reminding us of the wonderful comforts of home. They have put together a collection of stories, resources and suggestions to help make the most of our home, how important our home is, and many services offered by local businesses.
Sheffield Culture Hub
With our usual means of soaking up culture through theatre, concerts and other community events on hold for now, the Sheffield Culture Hub are determined keep culture alive. This collective of art and culture festivals, venues and organisations are working together to help the arts community stay open, online. The University of Sheffield and Sheffield City council recognise the importance of keeping the city’s vibrant culture alive and accessible to as many as possible. They have paired with many excellent festivals, galleries, theatres and more to bring you online shows, tours and exhibitions, accessible to all.
The Outdoor City
Did you know one of Sheffield’s nicknames is ‘The Outdoor City’? We are incredibly lucky to have so much green space and gorgeous outdoor areas to explore on our doorstep where we can enjoy natural social distancing. Many people live here because they love the great outdoors and the wealth of activities we have on offer, love running, climbing, cycling, mountain biking, slacklining, wild swimming or trekking around the Peak District. We also have some gorgeous green space right in the city centre to explore and get yourself back to nature, no matter how brief your visit. Even if you can’t get outdoors, you can enjoy a collection of free to view films that The Outdoor City plays a big part in. Perfect inspiration for your next trip.
Sheffield Delivery Directory
Sheffield has stepped up during these difficult times and pulled together a comprehensive guide of shops, bars, restaurants and cafes offering a delivery service, continuing or having adapted their usual service. Hundreds of businesses have applied to take part and are now featured on this website, helping them to keep their businesses afloat as best as they can. Due to government restrictions, unfortunately, the bar & restaurant in the Leopold Hotel Sheffield has had to restrict service. We encourage our guests to enjoy some local cuisine by having it delivered to the hotel where we can provide cutlery, dinnerware and accompanying drinks. We offer a selection of bottled alcoholic and soft drinks which can be purchased from the Leopold Bar when you collect your take-out food delivery.
It’s not just arts and commerce that have stepped up their game to continue through Coronavirus. Sheffield hotels have adapted in ways we could have never anticipated. Properties, including Leopold Hotel Sheffield, have adapted to incorporate stringent hygiene and deep cleaning practices, one-way systems, hands-free check-in and check-out processes, frequent disinfecting and sanitising, adapted breakfasts and super-safe table service, all of which keeps our staff and customers safe and comfortable. Our new way of working is becoming second nature to our dedicated team, meaning it does not impact the high quality of service we guarantee.
If you’d like to make yourself at home in Sheffield, we’d love to invite you to stay with us in Leopold Sheffield. We offer the highest standards in service, hygiene and quality, meaning you can enjoy a home from home stay, even if you haven’t left your hometown.
