They should then take a moment to appreciate the city’s amazing street art, including Pete McKee’s Carver Street mural of Muriel with her polka dot scarf, sunglasses and shopping trolley.

It’s then time for a sit down and a cup of expertly made coffee at Steam Yard, off Division Street, before checking out the eclectic mix of shops in the area.

Next up is the opportunity for a selfie beside the gold postbox at Barker’s Pool commemorating Jessica Ennis Hill’s heptathlon heroics at the London 2012 Olympics.

You can then learn more about the city’s proud industrial past at Kelham Island Museum before enjoying pizza and cocktails at the nearby Craft & Dough restaurant.

Complete your trip by grabbing an ice cream from Cuneo’s, hopping on a tram and appreciating the architectural splendour of Sheffield Cathedral.

Sharing the video on Twitter, National Express praised the city’s independent shops and bars, and ‘quirky’ street art, asking ‘who wouldn't want to visit Sheffield?’.
