  • Beautiful green garden, I had seen a pics of this garden and really wanted to visit, was not disappointed one bit though expected the garden to be a bigger one... Had to step out to get some salad with my host and got back here to eat. Love the Maintenance team too, they were busy working while I walked around. Oh and I love those woods they used in building the beautiful glass house of Winter garden.
  • Lovely quiet space in the city centre. Lots of tropical plants and often art exhibits. There is a coffee place and an eatery as well as it housing an entrance to the Millennium Gallery.
  • One of my favourite places in Sheffield. Calm, lovely plants and shops. Very interesting gallery too. Also a handy place to sit if it's raining or if you are tired
  • Great little place to take 5 mins break from the rest of the city centre. Couple of little local shops and some exhibits to explore as well as the tropical plants mean it's a great little place to relax for a few mins - or get out of the rain. :-)
  • The Winter Garden only has sub tropical plants, no native plants on display. Too many food and coffee shops inside making the place smell. Its a huge greenhouse, sited in Sheffield city centre. In my opinion it is sited in the wrong place. It would be better if it was sited within a parkland.
