AFS says

"Sheffield is an amazing city which never gets dull. It’s surrounded by the beautiful Yorkshire countryside and the Peak District national park, but is still a bustling metropolitan city meaning that you certainly get the best of both worlds. It’s full of culture, it has some beautiful buildings, and it has a pretty sick nightlife. As the years go on you may end up spending more time in the library, but at least you’ll have one of the best cities in The North surrounding you”.
