Sheffield city skyline.
Sheffield is a city and metropolitan borough of South Yorkshire, England. Like Rome it is built on seven hills. During the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century Sheffield gained an international reputation for steel production. Following a decline in manufacturing industry, Sheffield broadened its economic base and is now as well known for its universities, arts scene, and sporting venues.
