The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Alys Mordecai

Our Favourite Places would be nothing without our contributors — a massive thanks to all of them!

Tell us about you…

If anyone asks me what I do I usually say "colouring in and shouting about how amazing Sheffield is."

What does Sheffield mean to you?

Sheffield is my true love. I know that wherever I go, whatever other cities might catch my eye, I will always return to and love Sheffield.

What’s your favourite Sheffield place?

Ecclesall Woods in any season, but particularly when the bluebells are out. I love walking through the carpet of blue to get to Abbeydale Miniature Railway for a quick ride or two and a Mini Milk.

What would you do to improve the city?

I'd swap the pigeons for parakeets, have more benches for people to pause and admire the views and exciting public art to get people talking and thinking.
