The most convenient airport for reaching Sheffield by train or bus is the Manchester Airport.

The nearest airports that serve Sheffield are Manchester Aiport, Robin Hood Doncaster Airport, East Midlands Airport, Leeds-Bradford Airport and Birmingham Airport. When booking tickets be aware of the fact there are no train services early morning and late at night especially so during the weekend! Note that Manchester Airport and Manchester Picadilly are two different train stations.

Train connections can be looked up on the National Rail website or on the more browser friendly accessible UK train tables. The local railway operator Midland Mainline sometimes offers discounted tickets. Tickets booked in advance are, in principle, significantly cheaper.

London is two-and-a-half hours away by train, Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham one hour and Edinburgh four hours.

Sheffield's Midland (main) Station is just a two minute walk away from Sheffield Hallam University, City Campus. The nearby Transport Interchange links you to most destinations in the region and Sheffield.
