    I feel that people are being lied to a bit here. As i have been a resident of South Yorkshire all my life the whole no chavs things is BS.

    It's time for the truth. Sheffield HAS it's fair shair of chavs and dodgy areas, most real people think the city centre is an embarassing dump compared to Nottingham, Manchester, Leeds, etc and Meadowhall is chav infested (Doncaster chavs + Sheffield chavs + Rotherham Chavs + Barnsley chavs = Meadowhall)

    oh theres definitely chavs, but you won't see much/any of them if you stick to the student areas. Meadowhall is pretty chav central, but its not the end of the world.

    And who thinks the city centre is an embarassing dump?? The only manky bit is the moor and thats all getting knocked down now. Having visited Manchester, Nottingham and Leeds I think Sheffield has a nicer (and safer!) city centre than all of them. Especially leeds,with its run down shopping centre, hooks under the table in cafes to keep your bags safe from bag snatchers, and I saw a car get broken into within 30 seconds of arriving.

    In my experience Meadowhall's fine as long as you don't go on a Saturday. I've never thought of it as being particularly chavvy. Then again I do most of my shopping in Doncaster town centre so anywhere is chav-free in comparison. :tongue:
