The last Saturday in October I got married here. It was sooooo nice. The staff and registrar were so nice and so helpful. The room was lovely and all went well except for me sprinting down the isle and getting my hubby's name wrong :) . They did not make us feel rushed and kept the guests to one side... More

Clifton park is a fabulous place to go with young children. It's steeped in history with a museum that's free. A war memorial and peace garden, a pitch n put plus a splash water park and also skate park and climbing plus slide etc. We gather as a group of friends with children ranging in age from 7 to 16...

I got married at Clifton park museum on friday, the museum itself is a beautiful building and the room in which you marry is perfect, however I was hugely disappointed by the way myself and my wedding party were treated by the staff at the museum, our wedding was at 4pm so it was the last one of the day...

Had fun with children. They enjoyed the sand play area and water pool area. Will go again. Could do with more seating in sand pit area. Free fun for kids, keeps them occupied.

Glad to hear you enjoyed your visit to the Regimental Museum. This has been based within Clifton Park Museum for 2 years and has been really well received, particularly with the Regimental Archives being in the same building. We hope you visit again in the near future. More

I've been coming here since a young age, now my nephews come and I still enjoy walking around the late summer evenings with my fiancé. Beautiful parks, family entertainment and a lovely free day out. Just a 5 minute walk from Rotherham city centre.

Lovely to hear you use the park so much, so many of our visitors remember coming as a child and then bring their children and then grandchildren. We hope you continue to get many years of enjoyment from the park and museum. More
