Hire a car in Sheffield
George Orwell once branded Sheffield as “the ugliest town in the Old World”.
Thankfully, the city has undergone plenty of reconstruction since Orwell’s time. “Sheffield Steel” was a household name, which made the city rich and established it on the engineering forefront. Today, its student population and urban flare have generated an uncompromising creative outlook.
Still in the process of major redevelopment, one can expect even more changes within the city in the coming years.
