Sheffield is an absolutely stunning city. It has a wonderful mix of old industrial buildings, modern architecture and beautiful views that make it an extremely picturesque place.
As we have an office in Sheffield and absolute LOVE the city, we thought we’d take a look at some of the most Instagrammable places in and around the Steel City.
We’re starting with a bit of an obvious choice, but an Instagrammable one nonetheless in the form of the Peaks! The Peak District was the first national park to be established back in 1951 and has offered truly unrivalled views ever since.
A day trip to the Peaks offers the perfect chance to reconnect with nature, take in the stunning landscapes, burn some calories along the way and find the perfect locations for some extremely Instagrammable photos!

The Millennium Gallery
Moving from natural beauty to man made beauty now, our next location is the Millennium Gallery in the city centre! The Millennium Gallery is an art gallery and museum that opened way back in 2001 as part of Sheffield’s Heart of the City regeneration project. Fast forward to 2021 and the gallery features a plethora of eye-catching and thought-provoking exhibitions that are constantly changing!
The Gallery also adjoins the Sheffield Winter Garden – a stunning urban glasshouse that is home to more than 2,000 plants, as well as the Peace Gardens which front onto Sheffield’s historic town hall. This mix of expressive artistic exhibitions adjoining to both a truly beautiful glasshouse filled to the brim with greenery and flowers as well as a historic building in the city makes for an excellent location to take some photos!

The Botanical Gardens are home to over 5,000 species of plants across 19 acres of land and offer a truly unique escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. First created way back in 1836, the Botanical Gardens have transformed into the outdoor cultural epicentre in the city, featuring countless events and programmes throughout the year that, alongside the general walks around the gardens, attract up to 30,000 visitors each and every year.
Situated close enough to the city centre to make them easily accessible, the Botanical Gardens feature a plethora of vibrant and colourful views that are sure to make your Instagram pop!

The Lost & Found Sheffield
A slightly different entry into this list is The Lost & Found. This avant-garde cocktail bar and restaurant is a relatively new addition to the city, especially compared to our other entries, but it’s quirky yet classy decor makes it well worth a place on this list.
The food itself is also extremely Instagrammable at The Lost & Found, offering a mix of mouth-watering dishes including lobster, steak, pasta dishes and pizza. Just one look at their gallery should tell you all you need to know about this beautiful bar and restaurant.
