Expedia car hire in Sheffield comes with No Hidden Fees
Why rent a car in Sheffield?
The Steel City is known for its glorious industrial history, but it’s anything but backward-looking. Visit today and you’ll find a buzzing and creative university town with lively nightlife, excellent bars and restaurants and an increasingly influential art scene.
Book a hire car in Sheffield and you’ll have unrestrained access to one of northern England’s undeniable jewels, as well as the glorious landscapes of the surrounding Peak District. And, with great cities like Manchester, Leeds and London not too far out of reach, you’re perfectly positioned for a UK-hopping adventure.
The city sits roughly halfway from England’s east and west coasts, so with your rental car keys in hand you’ll find it easy to head to either. Manchester is around an hour and a half west (a picturesque drive across the winding green roads of the Peak District), while historic York is just an hour north on the M1. The smaller, but no less interesting towns of Doncaster and Rotherham are practically on Sheffield’s doorstep, at 30 and 20 minutes driving time, respectively.
What brands are available?
There’s a wide variety of hire car providers in Sheffield to suit every budget and requirement. As well as well-known rental car brands like Europcar, Avis and Hertz, you can choose from lesser-known options like Alamo, Easirent and National, among many others.
Must-sees within an easy drive of Sheffield
Sheffield’s thriving art scene has experienced something of a renaissance in recent years, so make sure to check it out. Catch a show at the Grade II-listed Lyceum Theatre, or the more modern Crucible, which also hosts the snooker World Championships. You can explore Sheffield’s industrial past at the Kelham Island Museum in Neepsend, or simply relax with a stroll through leafy Endcliffe Park.
With a hire car, Sheffield and its surroundings open up to you. The Peak District is a must-visit, a gorgeous expanse of rolling green hills, sleepy villages and deep blue lakes. The Ladybower Reservoir, 30 minutes west on the A57, is stunning, and a calming place for an afternoon wander.
Take the 30-minute drive north to Doncaster and head to Yorkshire Wildlife Park, where you can spot prowling lions and tigers from the safety of your hire car. Or, head to Rotherham and marvel at the imposing spires of Rotherham Minster.
Tips and tricks for driving in Sheffield
If you’re used to driving in the UK, Sheffield shouldn’t throw up any surprises. Watch out for the one-way system that covers much of the city, though. Miss your turning and you may find yourself having to complete the loop before you see it again.
