South Yorkshire is a welcoming and enchanting county that encapsulates the very best of life in Britain. In addition to housing some of the most spectacular countryside in the United Kingdom, the county boasts a number of popular cities and vibrant market towns. Sheffield is the most popular destination in South Yorkshire, and with good reason. Among the many highlights of this northern gem is the famous Hillsborough Stadium, the home of Sheffield Wednesday FC. Located on the north edge of Sheffield, Hillsborough is within easy reach of all the city's hotels and guesthouses.
A Cultural Hotspot
Hillsborough Stadium is one of the most iconic football grounds in the UK. Since its opening in 1899, the ground has expanded to be one of the largest outside football's Premier League. It's not only size that Hillsborough has on its side, however. As the site of one of football's most significant disasters, Hillsborough has a place in the hearts of football fans across the country, making the visit something of a pilgrimage for lovers of the beautiful game. Today, the capacity is close to 40,000 and the ground is regarded as one of the most characterful in the country.
A Premier Conferencing Venue
As with all modern stadiums, Hillsborough does more than host football matches. The stadium is a popular multi-purpose venue particularly well-suited to conferences, meetings, and private parties.
The various suites at Hillsborough provide room for as many as 300 delegates, making them great for exhibitions and mid-sized corporate events. The numerous executive boxes are ideal for intimate meetings, or are equally good for impressing clients on match day, with a superb view of the pitch. Catering packages are also available, making Hillsborough a smart choice for a wedding venue.
