To be fair, the parts I visit are nearly all newly built. If you have this opinion of Sheffield I could only assume you haven't been for a while. I find there's a lot more to do in Sheffield than Hull tbh, the nightlife's certainly a lot better. Rotherham. As I've said, I think the nightlife's a lot better in Sheffield, and it's just a friendlier place, I know everyone will have their own experiences, but a night out is a lot more pleasant in Sheffield than Hull.
