Sheffield : Michelin's recommendations
The richness of Sheffield's nearby hills (iron, coal, rivers and sandstone) shaped its destiny, and from the 14C the town became the principal English producer of quality cutlery.

Not far from Sheffield, the Peak District National Park provides an escape from the pollution of the city.
