    Sheffield is one of the largest cities in the north of England, and also about 15 minutes by bus from the Peak District, a national park which offers opportunities for walking, cycling and climbing. The Meditation Centre is opposite a large park and is near organic health food shops, cafes and bistros. Flights to Manchester and London are often the cheapest and from those cities you can get a cheap bus to Sheffield (megabus or National Express) or advance rail ticket.
