This week Grazia Local headed north for our Newcastle, Sheffield and Leeds special and we asked you what you love about your city. Sheffield gave us the Arctic Monkeys and sport’s sweetheart Jessica Ennis, but what else does it have to offer? Though it is known as the ‘Steel City,’ our Sheffield tweeters gushed about the local parks and beautiful surrounding countryside, meaning that you can always find an oasis from the weekly rush. @Eleanorthomps0n tweeted that there is “More green space than any other major city and even the railway station is pretty.” Inhabitants of the ‘toon’ tweeted that Newcastle boasts an abundance of shops and independent boutiques, as well as down-to-earth locals, who in the words of @LouLou699 “love to party ;).” Geordies also gave a thumbs-up to the nightlife and the friendly atmosphere of the city itself, while those living in Leeds recommended a walk through Hyde Park, a historical jaunt to the Royal Armouries and a pop down to the Clarence Docks. We’re on our way!
