2017 Hit List: Places to Visit This Year

It’s the beginning of a brand new year and it’s time for me to think about some of the places I want to visit this year. Be it a holiday for the weekend or just checking out an eatery I’ve been meaning to visit for a while, me and my boyfriend have decided to put together a bit of list of some of the places we’d like to pay a visit throughout 2017.

Some of these places (particularly in the pubs/bars) section, we have visited before but we have not been there for a long time now so they are deserving of our attention for a visit again this year. If you have any recommendations of places to visit in Sheffield this year, let us know!
