Formerly an industrial town that specialized in glassmaking and coal mining, Barnsley is conveniently located in the middle of three huge cities – Leeds, Manchester, and Sheffield. Being in such an area, the town has seemingly managed to imbibe the different music genres that surround them into their local culture and has produced talents such as The Arctic Monkeys and The Darkness, both of whom studied music in Barnsley College. There are also several museums and theatres that are constantly filled with a wide range of performances.

At the moment, Barnsley is going through some changes to further improve the community. There’s so much to look forward to in this tiny town and you just can’t afford to miss it. Here is a selection of best value accommodations that’ll solve your issue of where to stay in Barnsley, UK:
