I whiled away a very pleasant hour wandering round watching the birds and admiring the early Spring flowers, notably snowdrops. The glasshouse looked very interesting from the outside (I was there before it opened!). The beds and borders are well maintained and there was an overwhelming sense of peace.

I love visiting the Botanical gardens, its very peaceful on a Autumn/Winters day or very lively in the summer and spring months, you will always find kids playing on the grassed areas and families with picnics. If your not a picnic person there is a lovely café, which is well priced and serves fantastic food all year round. My kids... More

A cold, wet, foggy day in February is never the best time to see anything at its best - especially the beautiful Old Lady that is Sheffield Botanical Gardens! But as the song goes "Things can Only Get Better!" So to prepare yourself for warmer, sunnier & more colourful days go to the Botanical Gardens website! Look at the wonderful... More

I've been going to the "botanics" for years and it still is as beautiful as it has always been. Fantastic gardens, beautiful glass houses and wonderful history.

Had a wonderful Sunday afternoon stroll with friends. Ideal meeting place. Fabulous high position, above Sheffield. Enjoyed nearby cafe culture in Eccleshall Road. Enjoyed the trees and shrubs and very tame squirrels (very happy to run up your leg if standing for too long in one place!) Nice little visitor shop by gates selling relative and seasonal items, staffed, I... More
