Last time we went the gardens looked neglected with loads of weeds especially in the rose gardens. Things are looking up and its in much better shape now. Thanks and appreciations to the people that have restored its former glory. Well done Sheffield.

A beautiful place to visit it is so relaxing and peaceful. Was having a really stressful day so visited the gardens and walked around the grounds. Afterwards I sat on a bench reading a book in the quietness surrounded by the lovely fragrance of the plants. Needless to say the stresses of the day disappeared.

We have been to 2 of these events, both of which were exceptionally good. Historic bands with up to 5 different bands per event. I'm getting a dit long in the tooth, and I never expected to see Lindisfarne live again. 15 of the old band members together on stage. Wow! The second time was headlined by UB40, with a... More

Beautifully maintained gardens, mainly by volunteers, provide easy walks between flower beds and adult trees giving a calm, relaxed feeling at any time of the year. Although children are free to run anywhere, they never seem to threaten the relaxed atmosphere of the gardens. For interest, there is also an interesting pavilion and, believe it or not, a restored bear... More

This is simply fantastic: no Kew or even Magdalen -tho' that's its peculiar virtue - but a lovely and rich 'set of event'; the more so as it has been rescued from the vile ravages of Thatcherite cuts which decimated its beauty and variety. Something for horticulturalists, to be sure; but loads also for everyone else (and at every time... More

I've spent many visits to this place and every time I've benefited from its relaxed and open space. You would not believe it is in the centre of a built up area with shops and restaurants around. The grounds themselves are well maintained, with squirrels running around. There is a large green house with many exotic plants duly labelled. An... More
