Music Venue Constructed in 1991
The complex was constructed in 1991, and it enjoyed a glorious opening night with Paul Simon crooning his mesmerising tunes. The venue went through several identity changes since then, and today, it is known as the Sheffield Arena. But no matter what name it went by, the complex has always been known for hosting some of the most talented music artists. With bookings for thrilling music concerts, hilarious comedy shows and exciting sporting events, it lives up to its dynamic reputation even today. It’s also the home ground of the Sheffield Steelers ice hockey team, member of the Elite Ice Hockey League.
Plenty of establishments are located within easy walking distance. Several properties offer a free breakfast, free car parking and free Wi-Fi internet access.
Things to do around
Opting for an accommodation near the arena gives you several advantages. Not only are you close enough to attend your favourite concert without any hassle, you can also enjoy the other attractions nearby. Those interested in plays will love to see the latest production at the Crucible Theatre. It is a little over 10 minutes from the arena by car, so if you are staying at a B&B nearby, it should be easy to get to.
Nature lovers must visit the beautiful Botanical Gardens. With seasonal flowers and leafy trees, this is a tranquil spot to go for a long walk. The park also has a nice cafe so you can stop for a spot of lunch amidst all the greenery. It is located not far from the arena, and depending on where your B&B is, it should take you 15-20 minutes to get there.
History enthusiasts would not want to miss the Kelham Island Museum which talks of Sheffield’s industrial past. It houses the biggest surviving Bessemer Converter, an old industrial steam engine and reconstructed workshops of the factory workers. This attraction is only about a few miles from the arena, and has a great cafe and free car parking facilities.
Choosing the best place to stay for the night
If you are travelling with your entire family, we have some excellent inns and family rooms that even give you your own parking spot and a free breakfast.
For a truly luxurious experience, we have 3- and 4-star properties that you can take a look at.
