    Sheffield botanical gardens are very beautiful with plenty to see as you walk around. Very peaceful near the heart of the city with very friendly squirrels!  more »

    This garden look quite normal but feel very peaceful. We have great time here to play frisbee and baseball. Although we can't have BBQ here, picnic with some snacks and sandwiches is a good choice.  more »

  • Love walking round the gardens, there's something to look at through each season. Visit the lovely cafe, there's the glass houses and bear pit, a must visit.
  • The bear pit was a lovely surprise, will go back when the flowers are in bloom.
  • Visited this place in winter, which is not the best time of the year to visit but even with that in mind, I found that it could be massively improved. It needs more care.
  • Great gardens for a chill and ice cream.
  • Beautiful
