Electricity

The voltage in the UK is generally 230V, and the electrical sockets in the UK & Ireland are different from the rest of Europe. Please see this website for more pictures and more information. If you are coming from outside the UK or Ireland, you most likely will require an adaptor.

Cash Access

Sheffield has many cash points (ATMs) around the city centre, as well as in the train station - click here for a map of cash points. Most ATMs will not charge you to withdraw Pound Sterlings from UK banks; however, there may be a charge for international transactions.
