Staying in Sheffield for the Easter break?

For those staying in the fine city of Sheffield for the Easter break, Dr Emma Jones, our Director of Student Wellbeing and Senior Lecturer at the School of Law, has written a lovely blog post with a few ways you can spend your time

The end of the Autumn Semester at the University of Sheffield is a welcome break for students at the School of Law, who have worked incredibly hard over the past weeks on coursework and preparation for exams. Some of our students will be heading home or to family or friends' for the holiday period, but many choose to stay here in Sheffield. Whether you stay completely local and explore everything the city's bustling independent food and drinks scene has to offer, or travel further afield into the beautiful peak district or on daytrips to nearby UK towns and cities - we hope you have a restful but enjoyable break.
