Sheffield is renowned as the best place for real ale. Visitors to Sheffield can get their first taste of real ale right off the train, with The Sheffield Tap on Platform 1, being among the best in the city. There are great pubs spread throughout the city, but many of the best are found around Kelham Island. Sheffield has gone from one of the industrial powerhouses of England to a rising star of the UK’s arts and culture scene. Formerly famous for its stainless-steel cutlery, the mighty factories and foundries now contain galleries, theatres and museums. In the city centre is The Crucible Theatre, famous for hosting snooker championships. The Winter Gardens and Millenium Art Gallery. One of the oldest buildings in the city is the neo-classical structure of the Town Hall along with Peace Gardens.
