There are plenty of attractions and places to visit that are just a short drive away from Sheffield

8 attractions you can now visit for a fun family day out close to Sheffield - including Alton Towers, Gulliver's Valley and Yorkshire Wildlife Park

The easing of Covid-19 restrictions means that trips to attractions including theme parks and zoos are now possible.

And with that in mind, we have put together a list of places you can visit for a fun family day trip that are just a short drive away from Sheffield.

The restrictions were lifted as part of Stage Two of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown, which came into force on April 12, and mean it is now possible to for attractions to reopen and for members of the same household to take holidays in self-contained accommodation.

Gyms, hairdressers, non-essential shops and hospitality venues with outside areas have also been given permission to reopen.
