It hardly seems a year since John Higgins triumphed, but this weekend in Sheffield the Snooker World Championships get underway for 2012.
This year promises to be another intriguing tournament with lots of and twists and turns in store over the 17 days of the competition. There are a host of big names looking to win the crown with last years finalist Judd Trump, Mark Selby, Neil Robertson, Mark Williams, Mark Allen, Ronnie O’Sullivan, Shaun Murphy and Ding Junhui among the leading contenders for Higgins’ title.
If you are heading up to Crucible to see any of the Snooker Final sessions why not make a weekend or short break of it and stay in Sheffield or surrounding countryside. We have a selection of self catering apartments in Sheffield which will mean you are close by but if you want something a little more in the countryside why not head further in to South Yorkshire in a holiday cottage.
