Welcome to The Sheffield Guide!
Discover the very best of the Steel City with The Sheffield Guide.
The Sheffield Guide pulls together years of work from proud Sheffield residents. Decades of local knowledge lovingly craft each and every piece we do.
Our aim is to bring you everything to do with the Steel City through regular fun, informative and interesting content.
Edited by lifetime Sheffielder James Hargreaves (otherwise known as DeeJayOne).
As featured in The Little Book of Sheffield:
We invite contributions; whether you are a budding writer, a student or professional all content will be considered.
All we ask is that submissions are relevant, well written and interesting.
If you’re looking to build your portfolio we offer a byline and testimonials for published work.
Please contact us to get involved.
Our online Sheffield Shop offers a wide and growing selection of exclusive Sheffield-themed gifts and merchandise, including Sheffield Art, Sheffield Accessories, Sheffield Books, Sheffield Clothing and much more!
Any purchase you make goes towards supporting The Sheffield Guide, local content creators, artists and businesses.
The Sheffield Guide have partnered with local creators such as Art by James and the Steel City’s very own fashion brand, [SHF], to exclusively offer their works and items via our Sheffield Shop platform.
Every item is made-to-order, especially for your purchase! As such, we don’t hold huge amounts of stock, which is a practice that leads to huge amounts of wastage, particularly in ‘fast fashion’ industries.
We’re extremely proud of the quality we offer through The Sheffield Guide’s Sheffield Shop — for instance, all of our T-Shirts are 100% organic (suitable for Vegans), Fair Wear, PETA certified and exceptional quality for the price.
Where possible we support the local economy by sourcing our products and services within the Sheffield city region. Additionally, we prioritise independent businesses that use ethical practices and materials where possible. Where it is has not been possible to source to our high standards within the city region, we utilise businesses as close as possible.
Thank you for your support.
A favourite part of our content is our video series.
From the ever-changing landscape of the Kelham Island area to Secret Tunnels under the City Centre leading to the infamous Megatron cavern, there is something for everyone.
Popular videos have included exploring Stoneface’s Secret Sculpture Park and a look around the Sheffield Food Festival.
As you can imagine, our content takes a lot of time, energy, research and money to create.
Therefore, we gratefully receive any contributions and offer various rewards to supporters.
Take a look at our Patreon page to see how you can help.
We’re always looking for different content for the site and our videos.
If you have any ideas of what we can feature on The Sheffield Guide, please contact us!
We welcome press releases from local businesses, community organisations and entities, where it will make good, informative, relevant content for our readers.
Please contact us with details for consideration.
