Lovely place to go on a sunny day. Absolutely loads to see, and only 5 mins from where I live. Can't be beaten. recently renovated glasshouses full of exotic plants. discovery trail for the kids, ask at the cafe or shop for more details
This place is etched in my childhood as a place of advenure and wonder. I remember feeding squirrels so bold they crawled up my leg, and hiding in the bear pit from my dad’s best bear impression. Great place for kids.
There is usually an ice cream van outside, and all in all it is a cheap afternoon ormorning out, not a whole day event!
The Botanical Gardens are perfect for a day out in lovely weather, and the cafe can provide a welcome rest after trudging up and down Ecclesall Road. Well looked after, and hugely loved by the families and students of Sheffield.
Beautiful and large gardens. The gardens are located in a posh part of sheffield and offer lovely views and smells as you walk along the paths. The main entrance is usually is guarded by the ice cream man’s van and you can find yourself a whippy for .60 (or so).
If your looking for a place for a romantic picnic this is a fabulous place as there is lots of grass to lay a blanket down. Parking is usually not hard on the many side streets.
Been going since I was a kid. Always a good day out especially in the warm weather.
Just been under development and they have done an amazing job.
Was surprised when I walked in the bear pit to see a big bear statue staring back at me!
The glass pavilions are worth a look at too and its a great place for students to do some studying away from the noise.
Beautifully refurbished over the last few years. Perfect for lazy summer days and also for a brisk walk in winter. ideally located between Broomhill and Ecclesall road. The tropical gardens inside the old pavillions are worth a look. I believe the pavillions are some of the oldest of their kind in existence.
This is a beautiful spot not far from the centre of Sheffield and Sheffield Uni and Hallam’s Collegiate site.
Whether you just want to have a quick walk through or spend the day there lazing in the gardens, its idylic! The Botanical gardens have been enjoyed by young and old for years and hopefully will for many more to come. Its also a perfect place for a picnic, to read a book or revise for exams as its so peaceful, even when there are a lot of people about.
The two main points of entry are from Clarkhouse Road off Ecclesall Road opposite Tesco.
Theres usually an ice cream van on either the Clarkhouse Road or on the Ecclesall Road side, although the cafe inside the grounds also sells ice creams/lollies. There are toilets near the cafe and little gift shop at the Clarkhouse Road entry.
Since the restoration of the glass pavilions this is a really lovely place to visit, especially on a lazy sunny afternoon.
Wether its a stroll around the gardens looking at the variety of different and unusual species of plants or a picnic on the lawn.
In the summer months too there are often events in the Park ir Jazz in the park, where you can take along a picnic and listen to jazz, weather permitting of course.
when i was 17 when i first when to this place.
i went with my girlfriend at the time. its a pretty cute place to hang about in. the scenery is nice especially on a sunny day.
nice place to stroll through. however not very exciting.
Sheffield is the fifth largest city in England in terms of population but it is also one of the greenest cities in the country. I remember reading a few years ago that there were more parks and recreational areas within the urban boundaries of Sheffield per square acre of its total area than other city in England and any visitor to the city will probably vouch for this.
The four largest parks in the City: Graves Park, Norfolk Park, Hillsborough Park and Endcliffe Park cover an area of over 300 hectares but there are actually 75 different public parks within the City, plus hundreds of public gardens and recreational spaces, and many of these are right in the heart of the city centre. One such oasis situated right in the heart of the city is the Sheffield Botanical Gardens which is a place where you can quite literally step off one of the busiest roads in the city and walk into a tranquil area of woodland and gardens.
The glass houses are really the striking point of the gardens. A fantastic place to go to relax, get away from it all and just have a good time is here. The gardens are really good, lots of open spaces to spend some time - come here to refresh!
Just outside the centre of town lies this haven of natural beauty. It is a really lovely place to go just to relax or read or go for a picnic or with children. There are also some lovely plants if that is the sort of thing that interests you and some indoor greenhouses where they have seasonal plants on show.
