Information on Sheffield's nearest airports and how to travel to the city from each of them.


Doncaster/Sheffield Airport is roughly a 30-minute car drive from the University.

Manchester, Leeds/Bradford and East Midlands airports are all around an hour-long car journey from Sheffield.

Manchester airport is served by many domestic and international carriers and has a direct rail link to Sheffield both day and night.

Both London airports (Heathrow and Gatwick) are reasonably accessible by rail and require just one change of train. We recommend you to allow at least four hours of travel time between either of these airports and Sheffield.
