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

Armarni Lane Turton

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

Tell us about you…
Curly haired Capricorn and disco fanatic from a lovely little city called Sheffield! Pasta connoisseur and proud mother to a beautiful little boy and a dozen almost as beautiful plants.

What does Sheffield mean to you?
Sheffield is like an Aladdin's cave of wondrous places, people and achievements. If you know where to look, you can find treasure all around!

What’s your favourite Sheffield place?
My favourite place would have to be Graves Park. I love the colours, crowds and chaos of the city, but nothing beats the beauty and magic of nature.

What would you do to improve the city?
More colour! Less littering, and fines in place for people who swear in public or engulf you in grape flavoured vape clouds when you walk within 5 metres of them.
