Holidaymakers of all persuasions have plenty to get excited about in the county of South Yorkshire. Breath-taking open expanses, bustling market town and historical attractions, this is a county that's got it all. South Yorkshire's most popular destination is the city of Sheffield. Once known for its production of steel, the modern northern city is now a powerhouse of culture. At the heart of it all lies the Lyceum Theatre, which is surrounded by exquisite hotels, making it a real hit with visitors to the city.
An Historic Site
The original Lyceum Theatre was built way back in the Victorian era, in 1879. Sadly, this historic theatre was burnt to the ground. Wooden Victorian theatres often had an alarming tendency to that on a regular basis! After a complete rebuild, the present structure opened its doors to the public in 1897, with major rebuilding works taking place in 1991.
The Lyceum Theatre is the only remaining one of architect Sprague's buildings to remain standing outside of the capital. The 3-tier space holds an impressive 1,068 seats and has been a Grade-II Listed building since the 1970s.
Hiring the Lyceum Theatre
The Lyceum Theatre is a large space in the centre of Sheffield, which makes it hugely attractive to events planners, as well as lovers of theatre. Whether you're planning a wedding, private party or corporate event, the versatile space could well prove to be the perfect venue.
Hotels near the Lyceum Theatre
Sheffield is the county's number one holiday destination, meaning it's home to some of the best hotels in South Yorkshire. From families travelling on a budget to couples looking to splurge on a luxurious holiday of a lifetime, there's something for everyone in this charming northern city.
In terms of convenience, it doesn't get much better than the Novotel Sheffield Centre. The four-star hotel is just seconds down the road from the theatre.
