We often walk through the Botanical gardens and always enjoy it. Many diferent plant and flower varieties to admire and the greenhouses at the top are definitely worth a visit as there are many tropical plants to see. Nice to have an icecream from the van in summer and then sit on a bench watching the world go by. Also... More

Very pleasant garden to visit with a variety of plants from around the world. Must sees are the Paxton greenhouses (available for hire) and the bear pit ! Has concerts and outdoor plays in summer.

Visited this place many times. We had our wedding photos done here back in 1988. There a good cafe that turns into a restaurant in the evening. The grounds are nice to, take plenty of peanuts for the squirrels and they come and feed out of your hands.

I have visited the Botanical Gardens since I was young. It is always a place that is lovely whatever the time of year. You can spend time relaxing away from the sounds and hustle and bustle of the city or even just walk through from Ecclesall Road up to Clarkehouse Road. There are the glass pavilions to wander through and... More

Nice day out for all the family. No cost so attracts all. Can take a picnic and make an afternoon of it thoroughly enjoyable. Can be done in all weather's but wrap up in the winter.

Living in Sheffield I have visited the botanical gardens on several occasions. It is a lovely place to go to on a summer day and I presume it would make a nice winter walk but I hibernate in the winter so haven't been. The flowers are pretty and well kept and there is an inside area with tropical flowers which... More

The gardens are beautifully presented. Every season has something special. The cafe has lovely dishes on offer and is always impeccably presented and friendly. We love to call in and feed the squirrels, a wildlife and natural haven outside of the city.

This is a regular haunt for me & the kids, including our dog. Love the lay out, glass house & plant sales. Super, but busy in the Summer time.

An absolutely gorgeous garden with lots of hidden little paths and surprises. There's lots to see and it's beautiful all year round.
