About Rotherham:

We are proud of Rotherham as a place to live as well as work.

If a rural living is more your style, come and enjoy our country parks, woodlands, and nature reserves

Looking wider, Rotherham is well connected to the other fine towns and cities in South Yorkshire both by road and by a comprehensive public transport network - including the UK’s first tram-train connecting Rotherham and Sheffield, pioneering cleaner, greener ways to travel.
